The Physical Education Department is committed to providing a success-oriented program that supports the development of a physically educated person. Through various experiences with many kinds of activities, our program addresses the following areas: physical fitness, movement excellence and useful physical skills, social development, safety skills and attitudes, wholesome recreation, positive self-concept, and personal values.
The department offers three courses:
- PE I - a required, two semester course which introduces students to individual sports andactivities as a basis for individual fitness and wellness.
- PE II – a one semester course that completes the high school physical education requirement. This course transitions students from a school environment in which their recreation is planned, to the “real world,” in which they will be forced to make their own recreational choices. Students may choose from a variety of PE II options.
- PE III - Principles of Coaching, Officiating, Athletic Training & Sportsmanship - a one-term general elective course that offers students the opportunity to learn the basics of coaching and officiating.
PE III- Personal Wellness Plus - a one semester general elective course focusing on lifetime wellness that offers students an opportunity to maintain fitness and to be physically active during the school day.
