It's Not Gym Any More
Physical Education is included here in our academics area - right along with our more traditional academic subjects. Why? Here is a bit of trivia. What historical figure of 2,500 years ago said *"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear." ? The connection between healthy body and healthy mind has been known for a long time.
One of the best ways to keep our children healthy is to include physical activity into their everyday life. At HGS, students in all grades attend Physical Education class, and they definitely move. Beginning with simple games and exercises in the early grades, students move on to more advanced conditioning and learn the fundamentals of many popular sports in the higher grades.
In addition to sports and other physical activities, we include health classes, teaching lessons on safety, proper nutrition and of course, good character and sportsmanship. Finally, we supplement our PE program with lots of Athletics opportunities.
