Spring season brings new programs and life learning activities to students of the district’s Physical Education Program.
Freshman and sophomores have just completed a month in the pool learning water safety, survival strokes, and hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The program promotes water safety and basic water skills, and the strokes taught include the elementary backstroke, the side stroke, the front crawl and the safety paddle. Students also learned water entries including the head-first dive and stride jump entry.
Seniors will soon begin introductory units in yoga and Pilates as well as fitness center safety and strength development. This program encourages life-long learning activities in strength, fitness, and weight management. Students will be introduced to body composition fitness assessment and will have the opportunity to get a body composition summary.  
Juniors will begin mandatory units in Project Adventure, which is built around activities on the district’s high ropes course.  Students will be introduced to proper belay methods, high element challenges (30 feet off the ground) and a zip line experience. This program encourages teamwork, cooperation, and self-challenge by choice.
