Vision Statement

All students will be physically educated, having acquired motor skills to perform a variety of physical activities, physical fitness knowledge, and intrinsic motivation to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle in an increasingly changing society.

Philosophy

Physical education is an important and unique part of the daily instructional program. Not only does it con tribute to the overall goals of education, but also contributes to the development and maintenance of fitness, motor skills, social skills, health, and brain development. Physical activity is the method by which learning takes place. Quality instruction in physical education involves the "whole child" by providing psychomotor, cognitive, and affective benefits.
