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!
Bi-Weekly elective classes provide Kavod students a variety of electives options to increase their exposure to extra curricular opportunities. Some of the electives include: music, sports, computers, chess, science and many more.
Spanish Class – an anticipated future class at Kavod
In addition to the Hebrew language, Kavod anticipates offering a weekly Spanish language class beginning in 2017-2018 for basic Spanish language exposure. The expectation is that, similarly to the Hebrew model, this class will be taught through the immersion model.
