The mission of health and physical education is to contribute to closing the academic and health disparity gaps by advancing healthy behaviors and attitudes in all children. Research shows that healthy, fit kids learn best, and that exercise has a positive impact on brain chemistry and function.
The quality and productivity of each person’s life can be enhanced through comprehensive, collaborative, and sequential health and physical education programs. Health and physical education provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle that promotes physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being. Parents and community agencies are invited to share in the curricula/resources provided on this website as a means to develop health and success for all children in our communities.
