Physical Education/Athletic Department
It is the mission of the Physical Education Program at Northport High School to demonstrate a commitment to the comprehensive education and development of each student as an individual and as a member of the school community. Specifically, physical education activities, while embracing the New York State Learning Standards, offer students an opportunity to: a)understand the benefits of engaging in regular physical activity now and for a lifetime; b)improve cardiovascular and respiratory health through vigorous activities; c) demonstrate an understanding of how to participate in a "Safe and Healthy Environment"; d) develop sound "character" traits through participation in physical activities; e) promote and help improve self-esteem; f) help promote socially acceptable behavior, cooperation and teamwork through activities; g) develop life-long skills that students can carry into their adult years.
ATTENTION ALL STUDENT ATHLETES
As of Friday, September 11, Section XI has postponed the start of the athletic season until January 4, 2020. The expectation is that there will be condensed fall, winter and spring seasons from January until June of 2021.
