Hello and welcome to Mr. Mat'e Health And Physical Education Class 

What are the cores values of our Health & Physical Education classroom?
This is not your typical “gym” class…It is called Health & Physical Education. My goal is to teach you habits that will help you to achieve and maintain a healthy active lifestyle from this point on. Health & Physical Education play an important role in our daily lives. For example, with the food we eat; the amount of sleep we get; our daily stress; the ways we interact with others, and how much exercise we get…or don’t get. With all these distractions in our lives, we sometimes ignore our own health and take it for granted.

I want to work with you this year and teach you that exercise is in fact fun! The science behind Health & Physical Education prove that exercise helps to reduce stress/anxiety/depression, increases endorphins & serotonin levels (natural hormones that make you feel good); boosts brain power, gives you more energy, & fights off diseases.

We show respect at all times for each other, our environment, ourselves, and opinions that differ from our own. As a member of the Rahway community we exhibit integrity – even when it is difficult. We are self-disciplined in our habits and actions, and always have positive intentions. Excellence is our priority academically, socially and personally, and we persevere in the face of challenge.
