We welcome you and your family into our world of health and fitness!


Physical Education is an important school subject that teaches students about health, personal fitness, teamwork, athletics, and the importance of maintaining a life-long healthy lifestyle.  Students will learn skills, acquire knowledge, and develop self-esteem and good sportsmanship through participation in a wide range of activities.  Students will learn exercise physiology, body mechanics, and develop a better understanding of their physical abilities. Students will learn the importance of setting goals and attaining them. A balanced physical education program will produce young men and women who have developed maximum motor development, who move with ease and confidence, and who will maintain a high level of personal physical fitness in the future. Our curriculum will provide a wide range of activities throughout the year that will enable your child to achieve success at their own level. Our lessons are designed to meet the needs and abilities of all students.We ask your help and cooperation in achieving these goals.  We look forward to a successful year.

Our Physical Education Program will:

  • Increase self-esteem and social skills
  • Improve the health, diet, and activity level of every student

Physicals are valid for one calendar year, so if your child gets a physical at the beginning of the year, it is good for all the sports in that school year. A Parental Consent and Concussion Form are also required at athletic tryouts.
