PE/Health Department

6th/7th/8th grade
 
Our programs strives for teaching students Character Education and how to become a productive citizen in society.  We make sure they know that everything we teach them can not only be directly applied to their life now, but they can take, and will have the knowledge with them, the rest of their lives.  Focusing on the Health triangle for physical, mental and social needs, plays a key role in how we go about running our classroom on a daily basis.
