Niagara Wheatfield High SchoolPhysical Education
Physical Education affords individuals the opportunity to learn the importance of teamwork, cooperation, self-discipline, respect, dedication, socialization skills, leadership, and commitment. These qualities are integrated into the physical education program on a daily basis through participation in “lifetime” activities.
Physical Education will take place in a non-threatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and has the opportunity to achieve success. Physical Education is an opportunity for students of all abilities to engage in a variety of activities to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.
