The goal of the Physical Education Department is to develop awareness in the individual student of the role that regular physical activity plays in the pursuit of lifelong health and well-being and to provide her with an opportunity for enjoyment, self-expression and communication.
- Each student will be given an opportunity to exercise and become physically fit to better perform her daily routine while encouraging a healthful use of leisure time.
- Students will be provided a variety of lifetime and team activities so that each student may experience success and/or discover new interests in physical activity for the present and future.
- Students’ social, communication, and cooperation skills will be enhanced.
- Students will become acquainted with basic First Aid and CPR.
To meet the graduation requirement of St. Joseph’s Academy and that of the state of Missouri, one full credit is required.
