Health & PE Program
In Fulton County, we believe:
A developmentally appropriate and comprehensive experience in health and physical education is essential for meeting the diverse needs of all students.
A quality health and physical education program will foster the development of motor skills, physical fitness, emotional strength, maturity, values, healthful decision-making and the pursuit of lifelong health and fitness.
Participation in daily health and physical education is an integral and inseparable part of the total K-12 educational experience.
The goals of the Fulton County K-12 health and physical education program are to:
- Provide a developmentally appropriate and comprehensive experience through exposure to a wide variety of activities and quality instruction at all levels.
- Recognize that participation in health and physical education can lead to an understanding and appreciation of diversity.
- Provide for the development of effective and efficient fundamental motor skills.
- Promote the acquisition of skills and beliefs needed to pursue a lifetime of involvement in physical activity and healthful decision-making.
- Promote an understanding of the relationship between physical activity and life-long health, and assume responsibility for personal health.
- Provide an environment which is safe and conducive to self-expression, enjoyment and creativity.
- Promote the relationship between health and physical education, school, community and life through an interdisciplinary approach to instruction where appropriate.
