Students experience a variety of traditional sports and are introduced to new activities with a curriculum ranging from football to yoga to dance. In addition, the physical education classes teach about healthy lifestyles and how the body’s muscles work. The program also includes a monthly nutrition class with a professional nutritionist and chef that introduces children to the joy and social dimensions of food preparation, dining and education for living a healthy and productive life.
