Finding our way!

Playing Ball.png

Nursery-Pre K Grade-

Students continue to advance playing together, starting to move on from parallel play and we have begun partner interaction.  We have begun some basic catching and bouncing techniques.  Please practice with your child.  Remind your child not to bend towards the ball to meet it but rather wait for the ball to bounce up and give the ball a hug with your hands.

Please remember to refer to our gallery for some cute pictures. 

Grades Kgn- 8th Grade

Students will demonstrate control of the basketball by engaging in various drills  dribbling and shooting the basketball.  Students  will be demonstrating proper technique.  They will engage in prerequisite basketball games/activities.  (age appropriate)
