Kavod Elementary celebrates arts education for its creative power as well as the role it plays in the development of cognition, language acquisition, and the study of societies and cultures. In order to access the full potential of arts education, Kavod Elementary provides both focused instruction on particular arts subjects as well as integration of arts education in the broader curriculum such as English language arts and social studies. For our early grade students, we offer programs in visual art, dance, music and theater; Hebrew language instruction is integrated into music and arts education.
In the changing environment outside of school where many children are not engaged in regular physical activity, Kavod Elementary is committed to ensuring that its children develop sound bodies as well as sound minds. In addition to contributing to students’ physical health, the physical education program at the Kavod Elementary helps students develop physical skills and athletic skills, make friends, have fun, learn to play as a member of a team, excel on an individual level, learn the rules of playing fair and good sportsmanship and improve self-esteem!
