Physical Education course 1 is designed to further develop individual and dual sport motor skills, and combative fundamentals. Rules, regulations, game strategy, and safety are emphasized for each unit and activity. Social skills development is taught throughout the entire curriculum. Students learn the principles of wellness and experience it through various components. Students will assess their personal general wellness level through health related fitness tests and portfolio assignments. Students will design their own personal fitness program based upon self assessment data and appreciate physical education and the role it plays in developing an active lifestyle focusing on healthy choices.
Lowell High School believes that physical education is a vital component for the development of a student's physical, mental, academic, and social well-being. It is the PE staff's mission to provide equal opportunity to all students concentrating on physical development in the areas of strength, flexibility, coordination, endurance, balance, agility, and range of motion. Lowell's diverse program will allow students the opportunity to develop individual skills and introduce new, enjoyable experiences for life-long physical fitness and well-being. We will provide information for knowledge based learning in proper exercise techniques and practices, good nutritional habits, basic muscle anatomy, and elementary cardiovascular physiology.
