Physical Education Program
Our country has an epidemic of obese and poorly nourished students. A sedate life style coupled with a culture full of junk food is having a terrible effect on the health of children and adults. Obesity is the cause of many serious medical conditions. Therefore, PE becomes essential in teaching students how to develop lifelong exercise habits and knowledge about proper nutrition.
The Region 15 physical education program aims to educate students to be healthy and active throughout their lives. We recognize that regular physical activity is imperative to the well being of all people. We know that good health habits begin in childhood. Our focus is to motivate children toward a physically active lifestyle by helping them to understand the physiological benefits of exercise, perform a variety of movements, and appreciate the joy of activity.
Kindergarten students receive one formal PE class each week while students in grades one through five receive two formal classes.
