Welcome to Athletics, Health & Wellness

Health Education and Physical Education are essential for effective learning. The health education and physical education departments are committed to the vision of providing instruction that promotes and develops a healthy lifestyle. We believe in giving students a realistic chance of successfully managing the challenges of growing, learning and developing:

    -- By recognizing and fostering the fundamental value of wellness as an integrated school, parent and community approach for enhancing the health of our students.

    -- By enabling students to participate in a variety of lifetime activities to promote personal health, fitness and wellness.

     -- By empowering students to become active partners in their own development of health-enhancing skills, personal skills, intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills and life skills.

The primary goal of the athletics department is to support the academic mission of the District. Our vision is to enrich the mental, physical and emotional well-being of all students by providing competitive opportunities in which the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, team work, integrity, character, civility, citizenship, and competence are emphasized.
