Health and Physical Education Vision and Mission Statement
Our vision in the Acton Boxborough schools is that all students will understand, appreciate, and engage in a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our mission is to provide a progressive and comprehensive Physical and Health Education program through high quality research based instruction. Students will develop skills and knowledge through a wide variety of learning experiences in a safe environment. Our goal is to teach all children how and why they should keep themselves healthy and physically active throughout their lifetimes. Our instruction will emphasize physical fitness and skill application, critical thinking and decision making, sportsmanship and cooperation.
Health and Physical Education Rotations:
There are five rotations throughout the year. Each student will meet for 1/5 year, for approximately 17 sessions per/teacher. Students will be graded at the end of each rotation. Rotations are designed so that each student will alternate between Health and P.E., thus never having two Health classes back-to-back. All classes are Pass/Fail.
Grading Criteria for P.E.:
- Proper Attire - Proper Footwear (Sneakers; Active wear)
