Wellness Education promotes wellness concepts that build the foundation for health literacy and an appreciation for lifelong physical fitness. Students will learn to adopt healthy behaviors. This is a life-long process of enhancing the components of health education (physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and environmental), physical education (movement forms, motor skill development, and fitness) and physical activity, an important factor in brain development and learning. Wellness Education identifies what students should know, understand, and be able to do in practicing skills and behaviors that apply to healthy lifestyles. College- and career-readiness is supported in wellness education as students acquire and further develop self-responsibility, motivation, and excellence in learning as well as a life-long commitment to wellness.
Wellness Education includes Health Education, Wellness Education, and Physical Education.
