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.
Sierra sings! Music is very important for a developing mind, and at Sierra Hills, all students receive weekly music instruction. Instruction ranging from history of music and cultural application, to reading music, using a variety of instruments.
Our amazing parent club supports and runs this amazing program for students to participate in organized running/conditioning. Students have the opportunity at each lunch recess to run laps on our paved course, each mile earning special running charms for their necklace. Students have been know to run over 40 miles in a year at SHS, and loving every minute.
Our Owls nest is open before school from 7 until 7:45, and then resumes afterschool from the end of the day, until 5:30. This amazing program provides time for a snack, play, arts and crafts, as well as time to read and get homework done. We also have opportunities in the afterschool program to attend mini-courses including art, sign-language, drama, and more.
