As a part of our desire to offer the richest learning environment, Sierra Hills elementary offers Spanish to all students. Two times a week, our Spanish docent meets with each classroom and provides full immersion Spanish instruction. The Spanish instruction is conversational and relevant to student needs. Through the Spanish instruction, children learn songs, games, and cultural activities. Spanish doesn't just stop when our docent leaves, she provides activities that carry on between class times as well.
P.E. doesn't just happen at Sierra Hills, it is a part of our core. Physical Education is very important in the lives of young children. It helps children with improved physical fitness, provides skill and motor development, helps improve academics, as well as many other benefits. Students at Sierra Hills receive Physical Education instruction on a weekly basis, and work on a variety of activities from skill development units for catching, throwing, coordination and flexibility, as well as activity units for games, rules, and sportsmanship. Our P.E. program provides two areas for enrichment. Not only does it provide the physical components, but it allows for true small group reading instruction. When students are at PE, half the class stays with the teacher for differentiated reading instruction at their specific level, with their specific needs.
