Athletics

Physical Education at Laurel Hill is a total sports, fitness and health program. Every student is encouraged to have fun,  make friends, and cooperate. Competition is adjusted to a healthful level and sportsmanship is a top priority.

Kindergarten through 5th grade students enjoy a spiraling curriculum that builds on increasing knowledge, movement, strength, coordination, and social skills. The program is sensitive to individual differences in ability, motivation, and experience. Sports are staggered to grade level and skills and rules of play are modified, accordingly.

We play it all – the traditional and the exotic! Beginners and advanced enjoy lacrosse, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, tennis, track and field, archery, gymnastics, fitness exercise, yoga, and more. Try GaGa Ball! Or explore Project Adventure complete with rock wall climbs and “Shot Swing” free-fall thrills. Round it all out with Field Days and after-school sports clubs.

The “Jaguars” want you! Available to students in 5th – 8th grade, the Jaguars are our winner’s circle team for co-ed intramural sports. It’s competitive games with other schools in basketball, soccer and baseball. No tryouts! Just join-up!

Excellent outdoor and indoor facilities including baseball and soccer fields, tennis and basketball courts, gymnastic fitness circuits, running track, gymnasium, archery range, batting cage, deck hockey rink, and four heated swimming pools for the summertime. All at Laurel Hill for a complete athletic experience. After-school intramurals, sports club activities, and Jaguar team action for boys and girls offer exciting opportunities that encourage the novice in sports and intrigue the seasoned athlete.

COVID-19 UPDATE

 


HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW….
 THESE ARE EXTRAORDINARY TIMES
 HERE IS WHAT WE ARE SURE OF…
 TOGETHER WE SHALL PERSEVERE
As Charles Dickens famously observed…
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times . . .
it was the season of darkness,
it was the spring of hope . . .
We at Laurel Hill live “the best of times” every day because we are blessed by the beauty, by the serene innocence, and by the precocity of our boys and girls.
We at Laurel Hill live “the best of times” every day for the blessing of totally dedicated teachers and support staff who clearly know why they selected to do what they do in career and in life and give, and give, and give tirelessly to fulfill their greatest ambitions for their children’s growth and well being.
We at Laurel Hill live “the best of times” because we are blessed to have families joined with us to support and to build – partners in turning great ideas into great accomplishments, partners ready to share their skills and to help in the work that needs to be done.
 
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
 
FROM A TEACHER….
Ms. Bond’s Zoom Classroom
Never in my teaching career would I have thought that I would need to teach elementary class via online classes. Yet, here we are in uncertain times, teaching in a media platform that is geared towards the children of this generation.
As apprehensive as I was before the first day of Zoom (I woke up a number of times during the night like it was my first day of school!), I now feel energized and excited about what we are able to do with the Zoom program. I’ve found that I’ve been able to keep most of my teaching the same as when it is a live class! In Reading, we’ve done an author study and vocabulary work in just three days! I am so proud of how much hard work my students continue to do while they are at home!
FROM A PARENT…..
I hope this email finds you well and safe. I have been thinking about you & Mr. Stark often and must first apologize for the time lapse in reaching out to express my deepest gratitude. I can’t believe that we have just completed 3 weeks of successful and engaging remote learning. Your steadfast leadership at the onset of this crisis was inspiring. As this crisis turned into a nationwide tragic pandemic, your engaging and detailed remote learning program did not waiver. In fact, it strengthened! Our children were the lucky ones to maintain a sense of normalcy with their routine schedule and engaging “live” classes with all of their treasured teachers and classmate friends.
