Extracurricular Activities

The BOKS Program


The BOKS is an early morning program that we started this fall. The program prepares children for a day of learning. It’s an important step in helping children gain appreciation of the benefits of exercising and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. Our typical BOKS class runs for 60 minutes long where children enjoy fun warm-up games or movement drills. Then, they get to running activities, relay races, obstacle courses, and strength movements. Finally, we get to fun games together with our cool down and a BOKS Bit, a nutrition component of the program.

The program will run every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning from 7:15 am to 8:15 am for 4th and 5th graders only. It will start on February 2nd, 2015 and will end on May 15th, 2015.
