Essential Intent

    The essential intent of the School District of the Chathams is to discover and grow the gifts within each child.
    The Comprehensive Health, Physical Education and Wellness Department accomplishes this intent by providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve a healthy, active lifestyle, while fostering positive attitudes toward maintaining health and wellness throughout their lifespan.
      New Jersey mandates all students participate in a comprehensive health and physical education program with specific requirements for time and content. Our curriculum profiles (see tab at left) were created using the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS).  Parents with questions regarding the content within these profiles, should contact their child's health or physical education teacher.
