Two Semesters
Prerequisite: None
Teacher: Lynn Arnett/Justin Wade

Physical education is a critical component in the overall education of the total person. This class will expose the student to a variety of different sports and allow him to practice the biblical principles of working hard, being honest, loving his neighbor and exhibiting self-control. It is a class that allows the student to glorify God in competition while challenging him physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Health topics include physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. As Christians we believe that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and should be maintained in optimum condition.

Two Semesters
Prerequisite: One year of PE and Health, Girls only

This class will present elements related to a variety of dance forms including Ballet, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz and Musical Theater.

Two Semesters
Prerequisite: One year of PE and Health, Girls only
Teacher: Lynn Arnett

Throughout PE 2 (Girl's Weights), students will develop a comprehensive understanding of metabolic, gymnastic, and weightlifting movements with the goal of developing personal health and nutrition. In Proverbs 31:17 and 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, we are called to both develop physical strength and glorify God with our bodies. Therefore, the structure of the class is not based on competition or aesthetic development, but rather bringing glory to God through promoting a healthy temple (body).
