Our Mission

To prepare our students with the knowledge and skills to maintain a life-long healthy life-style.

Courses offered: 

Freshmen Year: 
All freshmen at PNHS participate in a year-long course of physical education, which is called "Wellness".  The focus of the course is to develop and maintain life-long fitness habits.Students will participate in a variety of activities. Twice a week activities will have a focus on health-related physical fitness.  Students will be wearing heart rate monitors during fitness activities.  

Sophomore Year: 

Sophomores take a one-semester course of Health Education.  This includes studies of physical, mental, emotional, and social health. The other semester is Driver Education & Safety.  It will depend on the student's birthday as to if they are in first semester or second semester for these two courses.  

Junior & Senior Year:

Juniors and Seniors have a choice of activities to participate in each semester. 

Electve choices:

  • Adventure Challenge (this course they climb the rock wall in the field house)
  • Dance 1 or 2
  •  Mind/Body Fitness
  • Skills for Healthy Living (advance health class)
  • Recreational Activities
  • Sports Medicine'
  • Team Sports
  • Weight Training
  • Strength Performance (advanced weight training, need teacher recommendation for this)

Twice a week the students will participate fitness activities. Heart rate monitors will be worn in all elective classes.   


PE Uniform Policy: There is not an official uniform that students have to wear.  Students must be dressed in order to fully participate in active participation.  

Students must use a school (district) issued lock to lock up their belongings in the PE locker room- both during class and after class.  

When students are absent from PE class, they will need to make up participation points.  Students should talk to their PE teacher as to how they can do this or check their google classroom for more details!
