Physical Education and Health

The goal of the physical education department of Oak Park SD 97 is to focus on thematic instruction, which allows teachers to connect learning with key concepts, which leads to increased student achievement. Through quality instruction, our students will develop a physically active lifestyle. The students will gain understanding through the importance of exercise, and sports games, which are guided towards developing a healthy body and mind. The student’s social/emotional wellbeing is carefully monitored through teamwork and sportsmanship. We also create, execute, and implement curriculums that tap into the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains. We believe in the development of our students’ healthy lifestyle by incorporating these activities which promote the importance of health and wellness.
