America On Track’s philosophy is in harmony with the California Physical Education Framework: “Physical education is a multifaceted process that teaches a wide range of skills and activities with the aim of the students’ becoming physically educated, physically fit, able to enjoy a variety of physical activities, and committed to lifelong health and physical well-being.  It is a continuing process of articulated, sequential development of skills, talents, attitudes and behaviors.”

It is all interconnected
your food choices, your physical activities, your positive attitude
and a happy, healthy body.
Make the connection!

~ Terry Thompson
