Physical Education


Welcome to Coach Vaiana's Physical Education page!

The Physical Education course is simply about one thing - PARTICIPATION

Students are expected to participate in the assigned activity the entire length of the period or until the Coach provides further directions. The primary goal is to stay active, promote health and fitness and still have fun.
