Health & P.E.

In Physical Education (PE), students learn that fitness training provides enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and social interaction. Fitness training can enhance physical tasks that are performed in daily activities, such as work and play, and they can be adapted to the needs and life-styles of anyone. Grading is based on preparedness, participation, and behavior, as well as an end of the semester practical.

In Health, students study topics related to their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Class discussions about tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drug use help students to understand the consequences of using these substances.

All students will complete the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (ADAP) that is required by the state to obtain a driver’s license as a minor.
