Physical Education

The goal of the physical education K-12 program is to provide students the opportunity to comprehend and experience the benefits of physical activity in their lives. In grades K-3, areas of concentration include locomotion and non-locomotion movements, ball handling skills, eye-hand and eye-foot coordination, and small organized games; Grades 4-6 experience the organized elements of team sports. Team sports are continued and developed through the 7-8 curriculum as well as individual lifetime sports.  In grades 9-12, the emphasis is placed on students being competent and  proficient in a variety of team, individual, and lifetime activities in addition, special emphasis on overall the benefits of physical activity. The program consists of activities that foster these benefits by developing and encouraging all facets of fitness (cardio-respiratory, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition), assuring self-management skills necessary for an active and healthy life style.

 

 

Health Education   

In keeping with the latest research, skills (goal setting and planning), communication, self-management, stress management, decision making, and advocacy, drive the K-12 health curriculum. This curriculum is designed to reflect Goals 2000: learner centered activities and authentic assessment; The National Health Education Standards and New York State Health Education must be accomplished through emphasis on student innovation and response. Therefore during these times for increased individual responsibility the curriculum must couple a sense of commitment to establishing life goals of positive physical, emotional, and mental health for its students. The student of today requires a multiplicity of different tasks to achieve optimum understanding of quality health and thus, the department has created a curriculum that fosters the health of the overall human being, mind, body and soul.
