Welcome to Health and Physical Education
Health, Physical Education, and Wellness
At B.U.E.S. we recognize the importance of student wellness. A student’s physical, emotional and social well-being and their readiness to learn can be dramatically impacted when a healthy lifestyle is followed. We are committed to providing a school environment that supports student wellness, healthy food choices, and regular physical activity. In order to meet the needs of our students we will:
- Provide a nutrition education that focuses on skills needed to adopt and maintain healthy eating behaviors.
- Encourage parents to focus on healthy behaviors that can be practiced at home with all family members.
- Provide a physical education curriculum that will keep all students involved in purposeful activity for a majority of each class period.
- Help students build more supportive relationships with each other and understand the importance of responsible behavior at home, school and within the community.
