Physical Education & Health


The Physical Education Program for Middle School is dedicated to developing competency in many movement forms and their relation to an active lifestyle. The focus is to apply previously introduced skills and to acquire the knowledge necessary for participation. The instruction at each level focuses on basic skills, lead-up activities, and knowledge that demonstrate competency in each activity. Improvement and effort are more important than mastery of the skills. All students will develop health-related fitness, physical competence, cognitive understanding and positive attitudes about physical activity that promotes a healthy and physically active lifestyle.

The Health Program intends to motivate students to maintain and improve their health, prevent disease and avoid or reduce health-related risk behaviors. It also provides students with the knowledge and skills to be healthy for a lifetime. The Health Program offers lessons that are engaging and equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy choices. Students learn the importance of having a well-balanced lifestyle in the following areas of personal wellness: social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational/leisure, and physical.
