Physical Education

    "Exercise and recreation are as necessary as reading.  I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning."

    -Thomas Jefferson


    The physical education program is designed to promote the health and enhance the quality of each student's life by providing opportunities to attain athletic skills, understand individual and team sports, and develop sportsmanship behaviors necessary to participate in and enjoy physical activities. Adapted Physical Education (APE) is offered to students with motor delays or other disabilities that preclude them from participating in a general physical education class. 

    Physical fitness and sports also promote teamwork, skill and enjoyment for everyone. What we learn at play is the importance of a positive attitude and the rewards of fair play. Through moving and learning, we teach the importance of fitness and involve students in regular, vigorous activity. We strive to offer a fun, comprehensive physical education program to foster social skills that enhance cooperation and opportunities for students to pursue health and fitness throughout their lives.
