PHYSICAL EDUCATION & SPORTS

Elementary students who play sports are more likely to become active teens who, in turn, are more likely to be active adults. Healthy people enjoy a higher quality of life. MORE

Elementary_First Grade

First Grade

First grade marks an important milestone for young children who finally feel like part of a “big” school. They may now eat in the cafeteria and play outside during recess without the direct supervision of their own teacher, experiences that help them feel more independent. They now have to use the social skills they developed in preschool and kindergarten in more mature ways. By now they can read and write at a basic level.
Elementary_Second Grade

Second Grade

In second grade most children practice the skills learned in earlier grades and begin to use them with ease. Some children who were not completely ready to understand all the material introduced in first grade may now be ready to master it. Second graders learn what it takes to be a good reader. Mathematics concepts become more complex in second grade.
Elementary_Third Grade

Third Grade

In third grade, children start putting the learning pieces together to take on more complicated assignments. As they continue to apply the basic skills they learned in first and second grade, they begin to do some work independently rather than with the explicit directions given in earlier grade levels. Books, books, and more books fill the curriculum as third graders become sophisticated readers.
Elementary_Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade

In fourth grade children take on new types of work and social experiences, and for some. Fourth graders learn to follow the many directions and long-range planning that their school assignments require. They have to collaborate with their peers on group projects, which they have prepared for since first grade, yet new social dynamics emerge in fourth grade. They are asked to read in a variety of subject areas.
Elementary_Fifth Grade

Fifth Grade

Fifth graders work hard on projects and tasks that require them to draw on the skills and strategies they have been learning in elementary school. Teachers challenge students with long-term projects that require planning and organization. Fifth graders have become skillful writers with their own individual styles. They’ll learn to analyze characters, plot, and settings, as well as to recognize an author’s purpose for writing.
Elementary_Sixth Grade

Sixth Grade

Sixth grade students are often required to produce more extensive independent work, specifically in writing, as they will write formal essays. This calls for greater independence and organizational skills, and it may certainly require some adjustment and practice. Students read a variety of texts and different genres, including fiction, drama, poetry, and non-fiction. There is a specific emphasis on and increase in the reading of non-fiction texts in order to prepare students to read, write, and research across subjects.

MUSIC EDUCATION

Obtaining these skills early will help elementary students build a strong foundation for their future. The simple skill of attentiveness, which helps young students focus, listen, and stay on task, is better in those who receive early childhood training in instrumental music. From grades Kinder to 3rd grade our students play the flute and from 4th grade to 9th grade they play the guitar.

Music students also exhibit greater perseverance, which helps them continue pushing forward with a difficult task, even in the face of adversity. The working memory, or the ability to retain and manipulate important information, is stronger in musicians. Those who practice music perform better at memory and recall tasks. Practicing music also improves abstract reasoning, which helps students apply their knowledge and visualize different solutions.

COMPUTER SCIENCE

For students their life is divided into family, school and digital. It is our duty to define rules so that they can evolve safely and become innovators. Safety along with computer is crucial. We also need to teach them how they can contribute to the digital world and be part of its growth. Computer Science provides them with the ability and skills to do so.

One of the main goals of Computer Science is to know how to analyze, solve a problem and automate a solution using a computing device. Analytical thinking is essential in the 21st century and applies to any subject. By using technology in subjects that kids like the most, they familiarize themselves with computer science concepts.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION & SPORTS

We know our program plays a unique role in physical activity opportunities. Play, physical activity, physical education, recess, and sports are cherished parts of childhood. We understand that for many kids, gym class may be the only activity they get not just during the school day, but sometimes the whole week.

Times have changed and kids seldom go home to play outside on their free time, digital devices take up most of their attention. That is why we invest in a solid program in physical education and sports. Gym class is not just an opportunity for exercise and a break from the day, it offers team building skills, it helps them improve academic performance
