Of all subject areas taught in school, Physical Education is the only subject which, by the very nature of its content, has the potential to affect how a person will feel every moment of every day for the rest of his or her life.
The goal of all physical education courses is for students to understand the relationship between physical fitness and physical activity and living a healthy and balanced life. Emphasis is on the five components of physical fitness and providing students with experiences in a variety of fitness activities including lifetime/leisure, individual and team sports, and physical fitness. Curricular outcomes are to promote students’ personal fitness and encourage their involvement in physical fitness and physical activity, not only during physical education class, but also as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
All physical education courses are 0.5 credit. Students may choose two different courses or two of the same course to fulfill the graduation requirement. Physical education courses may also be taken for elective credit.
