Physical Education Department

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the physical education department is to challenge students to reach for their potential in body, mind, and spirit through the medium of movement.

  • The goal is to give all students opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to be actively healthy throughout life.
  • We strive to accomplish the goal through a developmental program of instructional, recreational, and inter-scholastic experiences that are age-related, challenging, and fun.
  • The physical education and athletics programs encourage students of all abilities from all backgrounds to engage in “hands-on” experiences.
  • The playing fields, pool, and gyms are “laboratories” where students develop physical well-being, personal character, and social responsibility in the “here and now.”

Here are the physical education and athletic objectives for middle school students:
  • improve fitness by working on cardio-vascular endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility
  • improve skills so students can better participate in more complex individual and group physical activities
  • improve knowledge base in game strategies, how to build fitness, and physical skill
  • develop positive attitudes about self and others in physical activity settings in such dimensions such as fair play, cooperation, setting goals, and working hard individually and as a group.

    The overall program includes:
  • recreation: lifetime sports
  • aquatics: personal safety, basic strokes, and the basics of competitive strokes
  • adventure: team- and leadership-building
  • athletics: intramural and interscholastic
