Beliefs

The Puyallup School District believes that an understanding of good health and fitness concepts and practices is essential for all students. Businesses have already begun to realize the extent to which poor health practices can undermine an employee's effectiveness and ability to succeed.

The same is true of students. Teaching our students good health and safety principles can lead to a lifetime of healthy practices, resulting in more productive, active, and successful lives.

Courses in fitness and active lifestyles are offered in the Puyallup School District from elementary through high school. Comprehensive classroom health instruction includes units on mental health, HIV/AIDS, First Aid, CPR, environmental safety issues, healthy choices, nutrition, and so on.
