Welcome to the Physical Education and Human Growth Department!

 

Welcome to Buffett Physical Education! Our dedicated teachers build their classrooms around the following objectives:  

  • Create a warm, welcoming atmosphere where students feel supported and encouraged 
  • Promote student physical and social well-being to create lifelong, healthy habits 
  • Provide opportunities to improve motor skills and movement patters for a variety of activities  
  • Increase muscle strength, endurance, stability, and overall fitness in our weight room and exercise room, equipped with weights, machines, exercise bikes, and more 
  • Teach sportsmanship and teamwork through sport and game-like competitions 
  • Utilize the latest equipment to reach all learners, regardless of ability  
  • Create lessons according to state and district fitness standards
     

Students use our outdoor facilities to improve fundamentals in football, lacrosse, soccer, frisbee, and more! In addition to learning the skills and rules of team sports, such as basketball, baseball, and volleyball, we include bowling, curling, badminton, ping pong, and more to give all students an opportunity to excel and learn new skills. Our weight and exercise rooms add yoga and strength training to our curriculum. Enjoy a few pictures and videos of our students participating in Buffett PE!
