PE 9 Mission Statement and Values

Mission Statement:
Ninth Grade Physical Education at Hanover High School strives to nurture the physical, emotional and intellectual capabilities of our students through a variety of approaches and activities.  We use a curriculum aimed at increasing each student’s ability to work in a group, to use their voice and actions to help ensure a safe environment for self and others, to experience the gratification that perseverance produces and an appreciation for lifelong physical activity.  We endeavor to cultivate self-advocacy in balance with attentiveness to the needs of others.
