The goal of the Physical Education program at The Cove School is to develop the whole child through a wide range of differentiated activities. These activities will enable and encourage every student to establish basic motor competence, guide in the growth of a student’s personal physical fitness while developing lifelong fitness goals, and help foster an appreciation for socially responsible participation in lifelong physical activity. In addition to an adapted Physical Education curriculum, The Cove School utilizes a premier Fitness Center which helps to develop an appreciation for, and an understanding of, the lifelong benefits that result from a developed knowledge of health-related fitness. This Fitness Program will facilitate the growth of each student’s physical fitness levels, grow each student’s knowledge of fitness principles, and form a foundation for positive attitudes and beliefs for the benefits of lifelong fitness.
