PE Department Policies
Physical Education emphasizes instruction in the areas of physical fitness, socialization, teamwork, sportsmanship, health concepts, movement skills, and the knowledge needed to participate in a variety of games and activities. Additionally, this two year course aims to promote increased self-confidence through the use of goal setting skills and the understanding of the importance of the benefits of life-long wellness.
