Health and Physical Education Department

The Pennsbury School District offers a comprehensive Health and Physical Education Program designed to meet the needs of all our students. Our curriculum is based on current research and rigorous standards supported by the National Association of Sport and Physical Education. Our goal is to provide our students with the skills and knowledge needed to lead a physically active lifestyle.

HEALTH PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Our philosophy is to move students toward "health literacy", which is the main goal of the National Health Education Standards. We believe the health literate student should be a critical thinker, a problem solver, a responsible productive citizen, a self -motivated learner and an effective communicator. This literacy will allow our students more of an ability and competence to obtain, interpret, understand and use basic health information, and services.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Physical Education is an integral part of Pennsbury's total educational program. We believe that a student's well being is enhanced through daily physical activity. Through a developmentally appropriate and sequential physical education program, our students have the opportunity to learn to perform efficiently the motor skills they need in everyday living. The primary goal is to develop the physical, social, cognitive, and emotional well being of our students.

Our program promotes leadership, critical thinking, decision making, cooperation, respect, and responsibility by focusing on contemporary activities designed to motivate and encourage maximum participation. Richer experiences are created for our students by integrating the subject content with technology, multicultural, citizenship, and problem solving competencies. A strong emphasis is placed on fostering a positive and nurturing environment where all students can achieve success as an individual and as a group member.

It is well documented that many diseases affecting our society can be avoided through daily exercise. Our comprehensive curriculum will insure that Pennsbury students are provided with the skills, knowledge, and understanding to chose a lifetime of wellness.
