In Physical Education students participate in the following activities with an emphasis on learning basic skills: soccer, field hockey, flag football, basketball, tumbling, bowling, scurry hockey, square dancing, floor hockey, vaulting, sledding, snow shoeing, cooperative games/new games, softball, and volleyball. A three-week unit of health education includes an overview of important health-related topics, specifically studying the social drugs: caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol. In addition to learning about the effects of these substances on the body, students will develop skills to make responsible decisions using a program called Life Skills.
