The goal of Physical Education is to develop an active, healthy student capable, of using traditional motor skills that offer opportunities for individual and group success. Students engage in activities that are mentally stimulating, physically satisfying and socially sound. This interdisciplinary approach in Physical Education focuses on team building and inclusion of group and individual challenges that develop effective decision making for the enhancement of physical skills and self esteem. The Physical Education course of study (9-12) builds on the foundation of skills developed in the elementary and middle school physical education programs. Principles and elements of fitness, individual and team motor skills and cooperative team challenges are emphasized. Health and skill related concepts of fitness are taught, and career and vocational options related to Physical Education are explored.
