Welcome to P.E.!
The P.E. Program at AEEC, is an inclusive, innovative, informative, and enjoyable program for the students. They get to participate in and enjoy a variety of different activities and experiences. Whether it be learning a new game, skill, or activity or being exposed to a different style/approach of a familiar game, skill, or activity. Everyday we work on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being, by using components of aerobic fitness, muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility. In doing so, we hope to develop a desire for Life Long Fitness. By preparing them for Life Long Fitness we hope the students avoid many major preventable diseases and to live healthier, less stressful and more productive lives.
-In 300 B.C. Herophilus (considered the father of Anatomy) stated,
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot become manifest, strength cannot be exerted, wealth is useless, and reason is powerless.”
