DISTRICT 34 PE MISSION STATEMENT

Glenview School District 34 recognizes daily physical education instruction as an integral part of every student’s educational program. Growth in emotional, social, cognitive, and motor skills is fostered through physical activity. Along with the development of these physical skills, we emphasize good sportsmanship and fair play. Cooperation and respect for each other helps provide a safe environment, both physically and emotionally.

BELIEF STATEMENTS

  • We believe that essential physical education experiences help children to acquire a realistic self-image and develop a desirable self-concept.
  • We believe that it is essential to develop team building skills with emphasis on character building and appropriate social conduct by working with others during physical activity.
  • We believe that all students should be encouraged to develop higher levels of basic fitness and physical competence.
  • We believe that all students should be stimulated to seek participation in and derive enjoyment from wholesome recreation throughout their lifetime.
  • We believe that all students should understand concepts and acquire competent movement skills necessary to participate fully in physical activity.
  • We believe that all students should acquire safety skills and habits that develop a high degree of safety awareness for self and others.
  • We believe that instructional decisions and curriculum development should be guided by the information gained from our comprehensive assessments as well as current research.
  • We believe that time spent for professional growth and development in physical education research and instruction is critical for teachers.
  • We believe that parents are an integral part of their child’s physical development and wellness.
