There is no prescription that can do what physical activity can. Physical activity really is a wonder drug that makes you happier and healthier

~ CDC director Tom Frieden

The PE Mission

     The health and physical education department at Henry B. Burkland and Mary K. Goode elementary schools centers on the belief that every child can find enjoyment and success in physical activity that interests them.  As a department we offer a wide variety of activities to ensure that every child has this opportunity by including units in aquatics, gymnastics, dance, individual and team games, health, and fitness. We try to incorporate fitness throughout every unit to guarantee that students have experiences that will increase their fitness levels. We encourage our students to learn new skills while having fun and developing important social and positive characteristics.
