Health and P.E. Education
Health education is a required academic subject that teaches students how to take care of their minds, their bodies, and their relationships with others. Health education is required for students every year, in grades K-12. In health class, students learn the concepts and skills they need to be healthy for life, including:
- Social and emotional skills
- How to set goals for life and health
- How to find and use health services
- Good communication and relationship skills
- How to set boundaries and resist negative social pressure
These skills are especially important during times when families and students are managing illness or other challenging situations. While your child is at home, you can support their physical, mental, social, and emotional development with the following free resources.

Physical education (PE) is a required academic subject that teaches participation in lifelong, health-enhancing physical activity. In PE, students learn to work as a team, develop healthy personal fitness habits, and set fitness goals now and throughout their lives. Like other academic subjects, PE is based on a curriculum, with learning standards. Students learn a wide range of skills in PE, not just sports.
Children and teens should be physically active for at least 60 minutes every day. Physical education and physical activity are important because they help young people stay healthy and alert, and can improve academic achievement. Exercise and daily physical activity can help students manage their stress and focus better on their lessons.
