Health & Physical Education

Physical Education Overview

The Physical Education Curriculum enables students to master manipulative and large motor skills. Students perform warm-up and cool-down exercises both indoors and outdoors. Students become competent in a variety of physical activities. Our students design a weight-control and stress-management system with skills for flexibility and physical endurance. A safety awareness program that is integrated into our physical education program helps students develop skills of cooperation, as students express concern for the safety of others. Through physical education exercises, the language arts skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing are utilized in planning and organizing games and sports and in communicating to classmates andteachers. Students also use interpersonal and character building skills in their discussions about games and sports.

Health Education Overview

The Health Curriculum is designed to strengthen skills and knowledge in maintaining personal health and fitness, in creating a safe and healthy environment, and in establishing contacts with community including health and physical education resources. Our students learn about the human body, dental care, the dangers of nicotine alcohol and drugs, and common household products, and the value of exercise and good nutrition. They also develop skills in enhancing their self-esteem and sense of well-being, and they practice dance techniques and large motor games.
