    About the Department

    The Physical Education and Health Department K-7 is dedicated to making Health and Physical Education an integral part of the total education of all students.

    The department works collaboratively to strengthen the wellness of students in the Barnstable Public Schools.  In Physical Education and Health, all students will develop an appreciation and enjoyment of lifetime fitness and games.  Through many different units of study and variety of activities, students will gain the necessary knowledge to understand the importance of making decisions around opportunities to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    Barnstable Public Schools has made a commitment to combat the issue of bullying, using the Second Step curriculum for grades kindergarten to seven.  The Second Step program is supported by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
