Integrated Physical Education: 

focuses on enhancing the students’ physical fitness and motor skills, self-confidence, self-image, friendships, and social skills; skills that will be used the rest of their lives. Students will participate in aquatics, track and field, floor hockey, soccer, football, strength training, badminton, softball, gymnastics, bocce ball, bowling, basketball, and volleyball. Integrated Physical Education also encourages students to participate in Special Olympics Illinois. Student leaders assist and mentor each special needs student to help provide him/ her successful experiences. Leaders are required to fill out an application their sophomore year to be accepted into the Junior Leaders program as a Junior. After completing the Junior Leaders program, these particular students will be able to assist in the Integrated Physical Education class. Students enrolled in this class will not be permitted to exempt from Physical Education at any time during the year.
