Kavod focuses on Physical Education as well as academics. Every student has the ability to increase their self-confidence, and therefore improve their physical and cognitive performances through organized physical education focusing on individual, paired and small group activities emphasizing personal best and team building.
Physical Education at Kavod encompasses a multitude of activities allowing all children to become skilled and fit and occurs throughout the day with regular PE classes, structured morning and lunch recess, and other activities throughout the year. Our PE program does not focus on competition, but instead on building skill, flexibility, coordination, and confidence. Activities include running, gymnastics, skills in sports, music, and ongoing skilled activities.
Our emphasis on teaching our students to be physically active, increases their ability to remain focused in the classroom and absorb the rigorous instruction and phenomenal teaching. This combination of physical activity and strong academics, encourages a fun learning process, resulting in successful student achievement and high assessment scores for the students of the Kavod family!
Kavod offers a weekly Spanish language class beginning in 2017-2018 for basic Spanish language exposure. Similarly to the Hebrew model, this class will be taught through the immersion model.
Spanish is the second-most spoken language in the United States, after English, and is the dominant language in many of our neighboring countries in the Western Hemisphere. A rising number of employers prefer individuals who can speak Spanish fluently. By 2050, the U.S. will be the largest Spanish speaking country, according to the Association of Spanish Language Academies. That means that all children will likely speak the language or at least have friends who speak Spanish.
Bi-Weekly elective classes provide Kavod students a variety of electives options to increase their exposure to extra curricular opportunities. Some of the electives may include: music, sports, computers, chess, science, art and many more.
