Physical Education Department
The school's Physical Education program seeks to help students learn to reflect Gods image by developing proficiency in developmental and character areas of motor skills (manipulative, locomotor, non-locomotor), fitness (health fitness, skill fitness, fitness self-evaluation), concepts (safety, movement, principles, game strategies, body systems, environmental responsibility, rules of health, fitness and games, sport history/current events, awareness of recreational opportunities), positive attributes (honesty, patience consideration, self-worth, humility, responsibility), and interpersonal skills (cooperation, sportsmanship, leadership, respect).
Such development involves the mind in critical thinking which is essential to the development of Christian values; the body in motor, fitness, and self-evaluation, which embraces the biblical teaching that the body is the temple of God; and the spirit in continual growth that recognizes the importance of selfless concern, care, and service for others in harmony with thinking about things that are noble, pure, lovely, and of good report about others (see Philippians 4:8).
