Physical, Health, & Driver Education
The Driver Education Department of Downers Grove South High School will be hosting a Parent Involvement Program (P.I.P. Night) for Second Semester Driver Education students and their parents in the DGS Cafetorium on Monday, November 29 and Tuesday, November 30. It is mandatory that a parent and student must attend one of these meetings for a smooth start to your new driver’s career behind the wheel.
The Physical Education and Health Department of District 99 adheres to the Board of Education philosophy regarding the education of the intellect. Focusing on the intellectual as well as the physical development allows for total wellness. This comprehensive program is designed to develop and foster knowledge and understanding, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving.
The Department of Physical Education and Health in District 99 values this overall concept of wellness for its students. Encouraging the total development of the student with emphasis upon physical, social and emotional well-being allows for short and long term goal achievement. The wellness program designs specific educational and activity programs that include choices and decisions based on healthy attitudes for a positive lifestyle. Specifically, the practical application of physical education and wellness allows for greater kinesthetic sense, aesthetic awareness, self-identity and self-esteem.
