Focusing on improving the strength, coordination, and skill development of our students here at North Mahaska is the goal for our physical education program. Placing the focus on giving students a positive experience rather than keeping score or winning. We want to instill a love of activity, develop agility, and teach them how to be active their lifetime through. Students will engage in activity together to work at their own pace and develop sportsmanship, emotional stability, and appropriate self-governing attributes. Each unit gives students the opportunity to reach their own personal goals and encourages them increase participation in an active lifestyle.
