Health and Physical Education is a vital part of our education system at Mineral Point Schools. It is the key to improving a child’s confidence, brainpower and long-term health. One of the major goals of health and physical education is to prepare students to be active and healthy for a lifetime. Mineral Point Schools makes this an integral part of the total education of every child in Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Recognizing the importance of physical education at a young age promotes healthy habits throughout life. As modern life becomes more sedentary and specialized, particularly for those who live in cities, the importance of good health and physical education increases. It is important that children understand the importance of physical education and good health in their lifestyle.
Teaching physical education and health are as crucial to a child’s development as any academic endeavor. Our aim of health and physical education is to establish a culture of health and fitness, which is for the benefit of society.
