Beginning with our PreK-2 children, we do basic movement and games, including age appropriate activities such as exercising to the music.
Moving on to PreK-3 and PreK-4, students learn at an early age how to go through an obstacle course, walk on balance beams, have relay races and scooter races, as well as beginning ball skills, such as bouncing and catching. Exercise is also incorporated.
Our Kindergarten through 3rd grade students continue on with sport-specific skills and games relating to the current sports season. Learning the basics is important as the students progress on to playing team sports in future years. Students are also taught proper sports etiquette and how to play as a team.
Participation in team sports is an emphasis for our 4th through 7th grade students, so we concentrate on more intense sport-specific skills. Students continue to learn about the rules of each sport as they get more advanced.
Our Little Crusaders and PreK-3 students attend PE class once a week.
PreK-4 through 7th grade students attend twice a week throughout the year.
Foreign language allows students to immerse themselves in a new language and culture. Students acquire knowledge of basic vocabulary and develop an understanding of the cultural heritage. It allows the learners to compare their own language and culture to others while making connections.
The journey begins in kindergarten and continues through seventh grade. The students are exposed to Spanish language and culture while enjoying many hands-on activities that make learning fun and easy.
This learning environment offers students the ability to obtain near-native pronunciation skills.
Students become familiar with sounds and common words and phrases. The vocabulary and grammatical structures center on age appropriate topics of interest. We use our Catholic-based learning as well, learning prayers in Spanish at age appropriate levels.
