Philosophy

The purpose of Physical Education is to teach the whole student, not just their body and movement. Physical education provides the opportunity to teach students about movement, strategies, teamwork, problem solving and health related fitness. Exposing students to various physical activities, sports, and methods of fitness can better provide enjoyment of physical activity, as well as build social, psychomotor, and cognitive skills. We strive to safely provide the means for students to enjoy physical activity, become more confident with their abilities, increase their knowledge of health related fitness, and help them find ways to continue to be physically active.

The goal of our PE elective program will be to make physical education class as enjoyable as possible. This goal starts by providing a safe and comfortable environment. This occurs when every student feels physically and emotionally safe. We provide students with the means and knowledge for living a healthy, active, lifestyle. Students will be encouraged to find individual ways that work for them to stay fit in a safe fashion, both physically and emotionally.

Physical Education is based upon the acquisition of knowledge and skills that are the foundation for engaging in physical activity. However, the mere acquisition of knowledge and skills is not enough. The mission of Physical Education is to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life.


Physical Education is a sequential education program. It is based on physical activities undertaken in an active, caring, supportive and non-threatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and successful. Students with disabilities are provided with a learning environment that is modified, when necessary, to allow for maximum participation.
