Physical Education and Health

Welcome to the Physical Education Department
Bosse's mission for physical education is to provided our students with opportunities to succeed in a variety of movement and fitness activities that assist them in acquiring motor skills, health-related fitness, positive attitudes, and self-esteem. Physical activity is used to show students the enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, social interactions, and health benefits that can be derived from everyday physical activity and strong mental health.
