The North Dakota Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance was established in 1928, with Fred Spalding from Valley City as our first President. While the field of education has had many changes in the past 90+ years, our mission has stayed the same–
To encourage and provide professional development and support for HPERD professionals.
We accomplish our mission through professional development, newsletters, and networking among our members.
We are made up of public and private school teachers, collegiate professors, and health professionals that believe in the importance of active living.
