Health and nutrition are a priority at The Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School. Through non-competitive physical activities, we give students the opportunity to build strength and endurance…and brain cells, too!
Research shows that mental focus and concentration levels in children improve significantly after engaging in structured physical activity. Our PE program is designed around the notion that fitness, health, wellness and classroom learning are interdependent. Each child develops a unique fitness plan that focuses on enhancing cardiovascular strength, and developing a healthy lifestyle and lifelong interest in recreational fitness. Our PE instructor also works with classroom teachers to incorporate physical exercise into learning activities.
In Middle School, students can choose from a broad range of PE electives that may include strength conditioning, yoga, floor hockey and step aerobics among others.
