The physical education program helps students develop a healthy lifestyle. The program reinforces healthy habits including proper nutrition and healthy exercise. In the early years, the skills developed in physical education class focus on gross motor skills including skipping, jumping, running, and catching a ball. As students become older, there is more of an emphasis on building strong and healthy bodies through running, push-ups, and pull-ups. Additionally, students learn skills related to team sports such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer.
The art program focuses on helping students express themselves through art. The students learn about the artistic techniques that famous artists have used in their masterpieces. Then, the students have the opportunity to try the techniques out in art projects of their own. During the course of the program, the students work with 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional art. They also use various mediums including pencils, paint, chalk, clay, and ink.
In the eighth grade, the students participate in a legacy art project. Each year, the art teacher chooses a project that the students will complete. This project will be a lasting art project for the school community to enjoy for years to come. Previous examples include bronze work, tile mosaics, and painting.
Throughout the music program, students learn about music theory. In the early years, the focus of the class revolves around singing and signing to the song. As the students become older, the children continue to explore music through song, but they also learn to play several musical instruments including the recorder, ukulele, and boom drums. The exploration into musical instruments and singing allows for students to learn how to work together in a group to perform musical pieces.
The musical theater program is for students in the middle school. Throughout the year, students are able to bring the skills that they have learned in their earlier art and music classes to the stage.
In musical theater, the students work with the music teacher as well as the theater teacher to perform a school play. The leads are typically from the 8th grade class, but the entire middle school comes together to create the production. The students learn to sing in the chorus, act on stage, light the stage, work as the backstage crew, and create the scenery for the play. It takes most of the year to produce the play, so the date is typically in the spring. Some examples of previous plays include: "Aladdin Jr.," "Hee-Haw Hayride," "Alice in Wonderland Jr.," and "The Little Mermaid Jr."
