Skills and Wellness for a Lifetime is the theme for our physical education program. Students will be taught a variety of lifetime sports as well as a variety of health and fitness related concepts. The MVRHS mission is woven throughout our curriculum. We teach sportsmanship and ethical behavior, how to function as a member of a team, and most importantly, how to lead healthy lives in mind and body. The freshmen program is designed for teaching the fundamentals of all the activities; skill and health related components of fitness (strength, flexibility, power, agility, cardiovascular) through the in depth warm-up in each class, as well as the conceptual knowledge of rules, safety, sportsmanship and self-evaluation. Written tests are a part of our curriculum as well. In the 10-12 curriculums, students choose between a team sport, individual or dual sport, or the personal fitness/recreational activity which are offered during the week. Independent study in Physical Education is only available for students who are seniors and are in alternative scheduling situations. In addition, electives in Physical Education are available for PE credit in some cases.
