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.
      Health and physical education are a mandated graduation requirement and there are state specific requirements for time and content. We have developed our program using the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS).
