Welcome!
The Physical Education Department is working to help students grow physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We are excited to begin working on our personal fitness goals and ready to take the challenge on new activities. We are devoted to work with all students with a variety of abilities. We ask students to bring the same work ethic and attitude that they bring to each of their other classes to Physical Education! In short, KINARD CHARACTER comes with us everywhere!
