Courses


KINETIC WELLNESS: TEAM ACTIVITIES

Grade Level: 6-8

The Team Activities program provides for skill development in a sequential order, which will be carried over in the high school program. The emphasis in the 6-8 program is on developing understanding and skills to be used through participation in all physical activities. Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to participate in team sports, recreational activities, cardiovascular endurance training, strength development and flexibility exercises. This will expose the student to lifelong fitness activities that benefit their health.


KINETIC WELLNESS: HEALTH & WELLBEING

Grade Level: 6, 8

Health & Wellbeing is designed to give our students the knowledge they need to make choices that promote improving their current health status. These skills include self-management, relationship management, stress management, decision making and advocacy. The goal of this course is for students to develop the skills necessary to live healthy, active lives and to empower students to use the skills they have gained to make informed decisions that will enhance the quality of their personal, family and community life.

Please note that all 6th- and 8th-grade Elm students are required to take health class.
