Our Mission 

The Mission of SHAPE PA is to provide leadership, advocacy, and professional development to health and physical educators.  One of the best opportunities to practice our mission occurs annually at our statewide conference where hundreds of health and physical educators come together to learn, network, and recharge their passion for the profession while earning valuable professional development hours.  We will provide attendees with over 35 session topics over a two-day time period, allowing attendees to earn up to 9.5 professional development hours.
