The percentage of overweight youth has more than tripled in the past 25 years partially due to increased interest in sedentary activities such as television, computers, and video games. A reduction in physical activity as well as an increase in caloric intake has contributed to an obesity epidemic.
It is a well-documented fact that North Americans become increasingly less active as they age. Just as children and youth can learn the habit of regular physical activity, they can learn to be inactive if they are not taught skills and given opportunities to be active during their childhood. Physical education in schools is the cornerstone of an active lifestyle for all students. School PE programs provide the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that facilitate choosing physical activity at home, at school and in the community.
Our ultimate mission is to educate your child about the importance of exercise and motivate him/her to participate in a lifetime of physical activity by exploring all avenues of health awareness and wellness.
