Physical Education
 
 
  Physical Education is a necessity for the health and well-being of every student. As a unique and essential part of the total education program, physical education can significantly enhance all aspects of development including health, physical fitness, movement knowledge, academic performance, goal setting, self-esteem, stress management and social skills.
 
Evidence continues to mount that regular physical activity can prevent a myriad of health problems that may arise throughout life. Research findings clearly demonstrate that daily exercise is a primary factor in maintaining health and enriching the quality of ones life. People begin to acquire and establish patterns of health-related behaviors during childhood and adolescence. Schools are an efficient vehicle for providing this physical education instruction.

   Health Education

       This course is part of a comprehensive wellness education program. Health is designed to motivate students to voluntarily take an active role in developing positive life-style goals. These goals serve to enhance the probability of lifelong participation in health promoting behaviors resulting in total health benefits. Topics include personal health, nutrition, fitness, peer violence, managing stress, HIV/AIDS, and decision making. Guest speakers will be brought in to address other concerns in the field of health.

   Personal Fitness and Training

   The purpose of this course is to provide an opportunity for students to get up, get moving, and evaluate their physical fitness levels in all areas of health-related fitness: cardiovascular fitness, body composition, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. This will be substituted for the Physical Education requirement   

     WHS 101
WHS 101 is an introductory course required for all incoming freshmen at Westerly High School. The course will provide students with many of the essentials that freshmen students will need for the next 4 years. Included in this class, students will be given computer logins, email addresses, MMS portal  and passwords.  Several in-house guest speakers will be scheduled throughout the semester. These “Important People to Know at WHS” will assist in laying the foundation to a successful experience at WHS. Several times throughout the semester, Academic 101 will take place.  This period provides students the opportunity to self asses using the work habits rubric, an opportunity for teachers to review grades on MMS and discuss, and finally, an opportunity to catch up on homework or missed assignments. Specific content areas will include envisioning their future, stress, why people work, identifying strengths and weaknesses, setting goals, and roadblocks and detours. Participation in class, class work and the work habits rubric are an integral part of the class.
