Sacred Heart P.E. promotes a healthy lifestyle, with a emphasis on nutrition and physical activity.  Students develop motor skills and problem solving skills through team activities, sports and games played at the developmental level.  Playing team sports like, basketball, volleyball, soccer and football, our students also develop social skills and how to communicate and work in a team atmosphere which will help students in all aspects of life.  Competitive sports are played more at this level, preparing students for sports his/her may pursue at the high school level.  Teaching the basics and fundamentals of sports is taught at this as well, teaching students the rules and understanding the "language" of his/her sport of choice.   Assessments are giving to students at the end of a lesson, gauging students fitness and skill level.
