Physical Education classes include many benefits to our students at Cedar Hill Prep School. We promote the importance of regular fitness to improve mood and create a clear mind for learning. Our classes help children of all ages develop locomotor skills, strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity, while also building self-confidence, enhancing communication skills through teamwork and sportsmanship.
Physical Education in PreK and Jr. K focuses on spatial awareness, body awareness and control and development of locomotor skills through practice of hopping, skipping, bear crawl, frog jumping, walking and running. The children also learn tossing and catching while developing early habits of sportsmanship, kind play, and following directions.
Grade 4 Student Pranavi at the United Nations! Peace Day celebrations took place at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday, September 20th. CHP 4th grader, Pranavi Sivakumar, had an opportunity to participate in this International Day of Peace Student Observance. This memorable experience for Pranavi is best described in her own words: “We waited in line for almost three hours. When we finally were able to sit down inside the U.N., we listened to many speeches about climate change. I also met my dance teacher there. She performed very nicely. I was paying close attention. I was the most excited person in my life!”
