Physical Education courses implement activities from seven basic elements. These are dance, fitness, team games, body mastery, individual activities, aquatics and alternate environment activities. Students will develop their physical skills in a variety of activities and build upon acquired social skills. Students are required to register for a minimum of 3 credits in Physical Education. Those students who want a daily program and enjoy P.E. are encouraged to register for a 5 credit program.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION 10 – GIRLS/BOYS (3 or 5 credits)
The girls and boys classes will be integrated for dance and the Fitness Friday program. Students will constantly be engaged in an active setting and will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue an active lifestyle, on their own, upon completion of this course.
