Physical Education

Goals and Objectives

Students will be able to acquire movement skills and understand the concepts needed to engage in health-enhancing physical activity.

Physical performance involves competency in a wide range of motor, non-motor and manipulative skills.

Students will be able to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness based on continual self-assessment.

Regular physical activity is necessary to sustain fitness and health. Students need to apply training principles-frequency, intensity time and type (FITT)-to achieve their personal fitness goals.

Students will be able to develop team-building skills by working with others through physical activity.

As members of teams, students need to fill the role of leader at times and participate at other times. Knowing how to follow procedures, accept leadership from others, participate actively and lead when appropriate will serve the student on and off the playing field.

Health Education

Goals and Objectives

Students will be able to understand the principles of health promotion and the prevention and treatment of illness and injury.

Nutrition, exercise, rest, hygiene and safety are the bases for personal, family and occupational health. Students can recognize healthy habits and understand why they are important.

Students will be able to understand human body systems and factors that influence growth and development.

To achieve healthful individual development, students need to understand human anatomy and physiology, nutrition, stages of growth and development, avoidance of harmful actions and the characteristics of good health habits.

Students will be able to promote and enhance health and well-being through the use of effective communication and decision-making skills.

From an early age, students need to know how to communicate their health needs and learn to take responsibility for their own health.
