Mission Statement-

At Beaverdam, students receive physical education with a resource teacher once a week for 45 minutes.  Physical education provides a variety of activities allowing each child an equal opportunity to reach his/her full potential and develop a positive self-image. Physical education promotes mental, physical, social and emotional growth through a wide variety of activities that develop competency in motor skills and efficiency of movement. Planned learning experiences ensure a progression of skills directed toward the enjoyment of leisure-time activities and total fitness of the student.

The physical education program is designed to provide students with skills basic to involvement in team and individual sports that exhibit expression, courage, perseverance, and self-respect. This program encourages interest and participation in physical activities and skills to help develop a strong physical and mental body. Physical education is a program that stresses the importance, value, and enjoyment of being a physically active person.
