Introducing Health & Wellness from the Beginning
We strive to teach wellness concepts and physical skills that will inspire students to embrace a proactive and healthy lifestyle.
Elementary students participate in PE twice a week, with a unique motor lab for kindergarteners to further develop their motor skills. Some of the units of study include jump rope, bowling, tennis, foursquare, basketball, volleyball, softball, and physical fitness. All students are encouraged to participate and increase their dexterity.
VCES is committed to creating a classroom environment that speaks to the needs of active young learners – especially the need to move. All classrooms have a kid-sized fitness bike that is in constant use throughout the day. Several teachers use standing desks and core strengthening sitting options. For students, teachers, also integrate time to take “body breaks” throughout the school day.
