Physical Growth

 As part of forming the whole child, students must LEARN to use their bodies in a healthy way as gifts from God.  Whether on the playground or on organized teams, physical growth helps students recognize their own gifts and talents and ACT with LOVE towards those both like and unlike themselves.
