Our program consists of six competitive interscholastic sports throughout the school year for both boys and girls in grade levels K-8.
By having a Sports Program for grades K-8, we create opportunities for students to develop physical skills, self-discipline, positive social skills, good sportsmanship, team cooperation, and to promote school spirit.
