Physical Education gives students the knowledge and skills to make the most of their physical and mental abilities. It gives them building blocks for good health, physical fitness and skills, coordination, and good sportsmanship.
Students learn to assess their own physical fitness and maintain healthy levels of physical activity. They learn new skills and improve performance while gaining the self discipline to take part in individual and group activities. Students who participate in physical education activities on a regular basis learn the benefits of that participation and value its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.
Students will acquire the knowledge needed to be physically fit and take part in healthful physical activity on a regular basis. Students who develop healthful patterns of physical activity and enjoyment are more likely to stay physically fit and active in their adult lives.
Students will develop motor skills and apply these to enhance their movement and physical performance. Successful development of motor skills provides an opportunity to enjoy participation in physical activities and reach advanced levels of performance, which in turn, increases the likelihood of continued participation.
Personal and Social Interactions
Students will demonstrate responsible personal and social behaviors in physical activity settings. Whether working alone, with another individual, or with a group, students engaged in physical activities are expected to demonstrate self respect and consideration of others as they seek to meet a challenge or solve a problem.
