Wellness

Overview

The wellness program is broken down into two parts; physical education and health. The expectation of physical education is that students learn the necessary skills, strategies, and develop an understanding of rules in order to be able to perform each activity out of school. The health curriculum is designed to give students the information necessary for them to live a healthy lifestyle and be positive members in the community.

Physical Education Objective

The fitness units are designed to give the students the fundamentals required to exercise effectively and appropriately. Fitness testing will be implemented to give students an idea of what areas of physical fitness they are healthy in and any areas that need improvement. These include muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. They will take a pre and post-test at the beginning and end of the year to gauge progress. Throughout the year students will learn how to make a proper workout plan that includes; healthy eating, proper form and technique in weight training, how to implement circuit training, and cardiovascular exercise.

Team and individual games are designed to give students the basic skills and knowledge required to participate in the game out of school. Furthermore, students will develop skills in the areas of leadership, teamwork, problem-solving and maintaining a cooperative and positive attitude.
