Values:

  • We believe self worth is unrelated to one’s socioeconomic status and that all students should have the same opportunities to achieve success.

     

  • We recognize each student as an individual and realize that learning should be differentiated to enhance the unique gifts and talents of each student to maximize self recognition and potential for achievement.

     

  • We strive to provide a welcoming environment to make students feel supported in their desire to grow as individuals, encouraging them to make healthy choices that drive not only their physical health, but overall wellness.By providing a safe environment, our hope is to make students feel comfortable and enhance their motivation to perform in an academic as well as an athletic setting.

     

  • We feel that positive social interactions are a key component to a students’ development.These relationships will guide their interactions as they become productive members of society; maintaining, it is important to provide a safe, constructive environment for students today so they can become successful tomorrow.

     

  • We know there is a direct correlation between one’s overall fitness and longevity of life.To enhance one’s quality of life, a key component to our program is to instill proper nutritional and training habits for students to follow throughout their life.

Philosophy & Goals:

            Every student has the opportunity to be successful in class no matter what their skill level or ability may be.  Physical Education is based on work ethic and attitude rather than the student’s ability to perform at a higher level.

            Physical Education is education of human movement through movement involving: motor skills; individual, partner, and team activities; expressive movement; and most importantly physical fitness activities for a lifetime, which encourage and promote active and healthy lifestyles.

            Social skills are an integral component of a physical education environment.  Some of these skills include: respect for all individuals and their differences; cooperation; teamwork; leadership; and sportsmanship.

 

Things to remember in the Physical Education class:

Please:

  1. Listen quietly while the teacher is speaking
  2. Be careful;, safety always needs to be considered when participating in P.E.
  3. Try your best.Individuals vary in skill and fitness levels, so as long as you try your best and never give up, you will experience success.
  4. Be respectful, honest and encourage one another.
  5. Never leave class for any reason without talking to a teacher first.
  6. Have a P.E. uniform or appropriate change of clothes for class (must go along with school dress code)
  7. Play hard, have fun, and show up with a great attitude.
