District 203 Physical Education Philosophy Statement
The Physical Education Department, as well as Naperville School District 203, has made a commitment to prepare students to live healthy, productive and physically active lives for the 21st Century.
• Physical education will provide every student with a variety of challenges that will contribute to the development and maintenance of their physical, cognitive, and affective well-being.
• Students will be provided with the foundation for making informed decisions that will empower them to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
• Physical Education is a lifelong process, which is the primary responsibility of the student, shared by home, district and community.
Health education is an extremely important aspect in the total educational growth of every student. In District #203, health education is based on the wellness model, which integrates the social, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical dimensions of health in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. Cooperation among the school, home, and community is imperative in providing information and values to promote wellness in every student.
