Physical Education Philosophy

We in Hanover County believe the mission of our physical education program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to value and apply physical activity and its benefits for a lifetime.

The physical education program in Hanover County provides an opportunity to engage in vigorous and regular physical activity. It promotes personal wellness and teaches skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities.

Physical education at Laurel Meadow is unique in that it focuses on learning about and learning through physical activity. The learning experiences in physical education are to help students understand the benefits of achieving and maintaining a physically active lifestyle and learn the skills necessary for performing a variety of physical activities. Students learn motor skill development, the anatomy of movement, fitness planning, social development, and energy balance. We encourage our students to demonstrate the aptitude, attitude, and skills to lead responsible, fulfilling, and respectful lives, including personal fitness, nutritional needs, optimal health, and the prevention of chronic disease.  

Please remember that students must wear appropriate footwear and clothing to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.
