The children in the primary grades develop confidence in their physical abilities by participating in activities emphasizing coordination, balance and dexterity. This confidence is utilized by students in the upper grades where the focus is on fitness, health, and good sportsmanship. Instruction is given in baseball, basketball, volleyball, softball, football, group games, dance, and the President's Physical Fitness exercises. Students in grades 4-8 may also participate in organized sports on school-sponsored teams in the Peninsula Parish Schools League. For more information on organized sports, click here or click on the Athletics item on the main menu.
