    Benefits of Physical Education.

    To help create a healthy and active child, which will translate into a healthy and active adult.


    When kids are active, their bodies can do the things they want and need them to do. Why? Because regular exercise provides these benefits:

    Strong muscles and bones
    Weight control
    Decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes
    Better sleep
    A better outlook on life

    Healthy, physically active kids also are more likely to be academically motivated,
    alert, and successful. And physical competence builds self-esteem at every age.


    Thank You, Your Melrose Physical Education department.
