Enhanced Physical Education

Strong Academics. Healthy Habits. Enhanced Social-Emotional Skills. These are the keys to success for our students, both inside and outside of the classroom. They are the tools we strive to give our children every day. They are the foundation for a successful future. And they can all be fostered in one class — physical education.
