Welcome to Health and Physical Education. The focus in our courses is to promote healthy active learners. We aim to foster a love of healthy living in our students so that over the course of their high school career they not only participate in physical education and view it as a lifetime heathy activity. .We feel that by making physical education fun it will encourage students to keep being active for the rest of their lives.

This class will teach you how to handle emergency situations, take basic precautions to prevent disease transmission, care for injuries or sudden illness until advanced medical help arrives, and help someone in breathing and cardiac emergencies. This class also teaches you to care for life-threatening bleeding, sudden illness, shock and injury.

In this course, students will study the role of nutrition in maintaining healthy lifestyles, with attention on the selection and preparation of food for personal health and well-being.  There is growing awareness of the social and medical impact of overweight and obesity.   This class focuses on three primary topical areas of study: nutrition (including food service selections, a la carte foods, and vending machines), physical education, and physical activity.  

This school-based nutrition and physical education will seek to improve eating behaviors,  influence  attitudes toward physical activity and change self-perceptions of physical or athletic competence — factors
that promote lifelong physical activity habits.
