Physical Education Curriculum and Goals

The importance of respect for ourselves and respect for others is emphasized along with good sportsmanship. During class all students are encouraged to improve their physical skills along with building positive self-esteem. Many opportunities are provided for games and play, as well as organized sports activities.
