"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." ~ John F. Kennedy


Mission Statement
 

Our mission at Braintree High School is to expose our students to activities that promote lifetime physical fitness while working on cooperative and team building skills. At the same time, we still encourage students to have fun while striving to be successful. Through traditional sport and lifetime activities students are able to acquire new skills and knowledge promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Tips About Nutrition & Physical Exercise

  • Did you know that the original bottle of coke had 97 calories? Now a bottle has 242 calories. That means there would be 20 teaspoons of sugar in the 20 ounce bottle of coke.
  • Do you reach for a snack when you're bored, nervous, happy, angry, or tense? If you do, you may be eating when you're not hungry. Find other ways to handle your feelings. Go for a walk, listen to music, or call a friend.
  • The recommendation is to get sixty minutes of moderate exercise each day. Moderate exercise can be a brisk walk, aerobics, bike riding, playing basketball, running, etc.
