Welcome to The Health & Physical Education Department
The k-12 physical education program offers the students an age appropriate curriculum that promotes an understanding of a variety of activities that stress knowledge, competence, fitness, cooperation, and lifetime involvement in the benefits of being an active participant in sports and recreational endeavors.
In health the students are offered instruction in a variety of health related topics that include, among others, personal hygiene, nutrition, eating disorders, growth and development, parenting, family life, relationships, peer pressure, substance abuse, reproduction, decision making, self-esteem, puberty and CPR.
The curriculum for both physical education and health are aligned to the New York State Learning Standards of Personal Health and Fitness, A Safe and Healthy Environment, and Resource Management.
Field trips, projects, and guest speakers compliment the instruction in both subjects.
