Welcome to the website of the DRMS Healthful Living Department!
Our philosophy is to prepare students for a lifetime of wellness. We present students with knowledge of healthy decision making and provide numerous opportunities to practice motor skills in diverse team, individual and lifetime sport activities. Healthful Living is a combination of health education and physical education. Students rotate between the two subjects every 6 to 8 days. There are two teams of teachers with three Healthful Living teachers on one team and two on the other team. A Health & PE rotation schedule for each team is posted on this website. The two courses compliment each other. Students are encouraged to take the skills learned daily and incorporate them on a personal level into their day to day lives so that they may enhance their quality of life by developing lifelong fitness goals.
Our expectations and objectives for learning and behavior are aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, the National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) and Durant Road Middle School policies.
