Health & Fitness
The goal of our elementary physical education program, Health & Fitness, is to show each child how to possess the healthiest body, spirit, and mind possible, taking into account that what's right for one child might not be right for another.
Modeling values, ethics, and character-building are a big part of this learning experience. Elementary students have Health & Fitness classes two times per week, and are challenged with cooperative and team building games, as well as basic individual skills that involve gross motor movement, ball handling and hand-eye coordination. Health and wellness is also an important part, and the children learn about different muscle groups, how the heart works and why aerobic exercise is important, and how to develop healthy habits for life.
