The purpose of physical education is to provide students the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to make positive decisions about a healthy, physically active lifestyle. This is achieved through the medium of movement, regardless of innate and learned abilities, culture, or gender. A student's growth and development is guided through quality participation in the psychomotor, cognitive and affective domains of learning.
This course is designed to continue to give students the opportunity to gain personal fitness skills and knowledge through an enriched physical education program. Students will be empowered to make choices, meet challenges and develop positive behaviors in fitness, wellness and movement activity for a lifetime. Emphasis is placed on students learning personal fitness, including health-related fitness and wellness concepts, self assessments, and activities.
