PE Mission Statement

The physical Education Program at Jack Jackter Intermediate School is based upon the acquisition of knowledge and skills that are the foundation for engaging in physical activity. The mission of Physical Education is to empower all students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life.

Physical Education is based on physical activities undertaken in an active, caring, supportive and nonthreatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and successful. Students with disabilities are provided with a learning environment that is modified, when necessary, to allow for maximum participation.

We are committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment in which all students achieve personal bests and success. The goal of the program is to guide young lives towards healthy and active futures.
