Physical Education is a necessity for the health and well-being of every student. As a unique and essential part of the total education program, physical education can significantly enhance all aspects of development including health, fitness, movement knowledge, academic performance, goal- setting, self-esteem, stress management, and social skills. Evidence continues to mount that regular physical activity can prevent many health problems that may arise through life. Daily exercise is a primary factor in maintaining health. Establishing patterns of healthy behaviors at a young age can lead to life- long healthy choices. Physical Education and Health classes establish this type of instruction.
