The SPS Wellness plan promotes the best health possible in order to prevent injury and prolong the life span of our students with its careful regulations around physical education. These regulations help make sure that the students get the physical activity needed with as little injury as possible by providing an adequate space designed to keep the students safe.
No Student Left Behind
Students are protected as far as their physical capabilities in physical education. As the SPS Wellness plan states, the teacher must meet the needs of all students, including the ones who are not athletically gifted. It also says that there must be multiple activities provided that are considerate of different culture and gender roles.
