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, physical education, and fitness education. Students rotate between the three subjects every week. A healthful living rotation schedule for each teacher is posted here. The three 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.
