Overview of Health and P.E.:

       Healthful living is a combination of health education and physical education.  The two courses should complement each other.  Students should experience a sequential educational program that involves learning a variety of skills that enhances a person’s quality of life.  Today, health status is determined by more than one’s personal behaviors rather than advances in medical technology, availability of health services, or other factors: and research demonstrates that education in schools can influence the health-related behaviors of students.
