Physical Education & Health

  • Physical Education & Health Wylie ISD supports the health and physical education of ALL students. We encourage students to have an active lifestyle with some moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. Physical education is the planned sequential instruction created to develop motor skills, physical fitness, and sports' skills. Through movement, students will experience opportunities to utilize decision making and problem solving skills as well as to enhance mental, social, and emotional abilities. In order for physical education to be effective, it must include a variety of engaging activities, an ongoing assessment, and use of technology. The ultimate goal of physical education is for all students to embrace the challenge of a physically active lifestyle. The importance of nutrition, hygiene and healthy choices made at a personal and interpersonal level are highlighted each school year.
