Mission Statement

PE4life is dedicated to inspiring active, healthy living by advancing the development of quality, daily physical education programs for all children.

The PE4life Approach to Physical Education:

  • Be offered to every child every day
  • Be available for all students, not just the athletically inclined
  • Provide a wide variety of sports and fitness activities to promote an active and healthy lifestyle
  • Assess students on their personal progress toward fitness and physical activity goals
  • Incorporate technology on a regular basis
  • Extend beyond the walls of the gymnasium to form community and business partnerships

Description

PE4life is about increasing the quality and frequency of physical education, in all schools, K-12. Our approach is to involve the entire community in the school's physical education program. Our focus is to get ALL kids active and healthy, not just the athletically-inclined. PE4life measures health-related fitness levels, individual effort, and progress toward personalized fitness and physical activity goals as opposed to athletic skill. PE4life offers a variety of sports and fitness activities, individualizes instruction and assessment, and incorporates technology such as heart rate monitors and pedometers.

We're also about teaching children the "whys" and "hows" of investing in their own health. PE4life provides the knowledge and skills to inspire a lifetime of physical activity. We believe the purpose of education, including physical education, is to improve the quality of life. That's what PE4life is all about.
