Health Opportunities through Physical Education (HOPE) combines health and physical education and enables students to experience first-hand the many benefits of regular physical activity, proper nutrition, and healthy decision making! The healthy choices students make today will have an impact for a lifetime.
Students begin the course with an assessment of their current physical fitness levels and define personal goals. Fitness training principles are applied to workouts to enhance and improve health-related and skill-related areas of fitness. Students maintain workout logs to track weekly physical activity and assess their progress toward personalized goals.
Additional course topics challenge students to become educated consumers, manage stress, choose nutritious foods, make healthy lifestyle choices, be effective members of a team, and influence others in the community in a positive way. Projects challenge students to seek solutions for issues facing teens in today’s culture.
