Physical Education

Sixth graders begin to fill various leadership roles around the court including taking care of attendance, assisting in the locker rooms, setting up the fields, and collecting equipment. Fall sports include track and field, soccer and Capture the Flag, activities that call for stamina, spatial awareness and teamwork. Dodge ball games are introduced to develop control, accuracy, sensitivity and strategy. Other games include juggling, European handball, volleyball, and ultimate Frisbee.

Eurythmy

Eurythmy exercises are inspired by the culture of ancient Rome. Attention is placed on precise forms, the practice of mental imaging, and vigorous exercises requiring dexterity. Students begin to work with the copper rods to strengthen their orientation in space, stimulate blood circulation and develop muscle tone. Each lesson begins with a concentration and coordination exercise to stimulate the mind and body.
