Health/Physical Education

At CREC we strive to ensure that every child learns the skills necessary to make health enhancing decisions regarding their own health and advocate for changes to help improve the health of individuals in their family, school, community and beyond.  These skills are designed to help our students make healthy decisions to improve their health now and throughout their lifetime.
