The Health and Physical Education Department is committed to delivering a sequential, standards-based K-12 curriculum with the foundation of instruction derived from the 5 pillars: Habits of Mind, Health Literacy, Physical Literacy, Advocacy and Community Connection. The focus is on social and mental health, the importance of movement, decision making skills, and healthy habits. The emphasis is on a safe and comfortable environment to promote the most success and to provide an environment that is inclusive, respectful, safe, and equitable, while embracing uniqueness and diversity. The curriculum is designed to empower students to cultivate positive attitudes towards a lifetime of physical activity and wellness.
