The mission of York High School’s PE/Health/Driver Education department is to proactively develop physically fit individuals, strengthen minds, and promote positive attitudes towards life-long fitness while shaping individuals to become positive, impactful members of society.

WELCOME

Overview for Parents

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!!  The entire PE/Health/Driver Education staff is excited and dedicated to working with your children to promote life-long healthy habits with an emphasis on life-long activity.  As the Department Chair of Physical Education, Health, and Driver Education I am committed to engaging your children in meaningful activities and lessons while offering a strong curriculum with a variety of choices.

As a department we strongly believe daily physical education for our students is one of the most meaningful parts of their day physically, socially, and mentally.  Students at York will be provided with a foundation for making informed decisions that will enable them to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle for years to come.  As a department we are committed to providing outside fitness and health opportunities for the students and community to promote daily fitness and healthy habits.  We want students to graduate from York with knowledge on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a desire to be physically active.

At any point in the year please feel free to visit any of our PE/Health/Driver Education classes or if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at ldeangelis@elmhurst205.org

On behalf of the entire PE/Health/Driver Education staff we wish your children a very successful, meaningful year!
