GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE P.E. DEPARTMENT
The P.E. department believes that each student should be exposed to a healthful lifestyle that includes consistent exercise, proper diet, and healthy habits.
A consistent exercise program is emphasized throughout the curriculum by providing daily exercises as part of the lesson. In each class, students are exposed to the flexibility, cardiovascular, agility, and strength components of exercise.
The importance of flexibility is discussed in class. Flexibility is important in preventing injury and increasing an individual's performance. The students do a series of stretches before and after activities. Each student assesses his or her flexibility on a monthly basis by performing the sit-and-reach test.
Cardiovascular awareness and improvement are measured through the student's heart rate. Students find their resting heart rates by taking their pulse every morning before getting out to bed for five consecutive days. They find an average pulse for five days and then do a computation to find their target heart rate for exercise. The purpose of finding the student's resting and maximum heart rates is to give them the knowledge of how hard they need to exercise to have an effect on their fitness levels.
The importance of agility and quickness is discussed in class, and ways to improve agility and quickness are presented throughout each year. Class activities include running with change of direction regularly. A shuttle test is then administered to see improvements in this area.
The importance of strength is also discussed in class, the healthy ways to improve and build strength. Each class includes strength activities that help to improve the students overall strength.
P.E. classes also emphasize proper diet, body weight, and healthy issues. Students participate in regular discussions on the relationship between body weight and body fat, and how this relationship affects health.
