Physical Education Department
The Mind-Body Connection
“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body; it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” So said President John. F. Kennedy.
Recognizing the connection between a sound body and mind, the Physical Education Department helps empower students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity and knowledge as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life.We provide an environment that encourages students to develop movement awareness, physical skill development, and ethical behaviors that can be applied on a global level. Students take responsibility for developing the knowledge, skills, and character necessary to achieve an optimum level of physical fitness.
