Recess and Sports
We believe in getting kids up and moving through recess and sports. In Kindergarten through 2nd grade, we introduce our scholars to different types of sports and activities including things like soccer, basketball, dodge ball, track and field, and teeball/kickball. We use fun and encouraging ways to learn the rules of each sport. For 3rd grade and up, our curriculum builds on this introduction and really concentrates on competitive team play as well as more complex sports like flag football or tennis. All scholars ultimately learn and internalize the important reasons why we "play for a purpose”—we use healthy competition and physical activity for various reasons from pure enjoyment to academic betterment for our whole lives.
During the fall our scholars and families get excited about our annual soccer tournaments. Our families get a chance to see their scholars participate in a friendly, fun and competitive environment that gives all scholars a chance to show off their newly learned or polished sports skills.
