The priority in this class is to create an atmosphere for exercise and healthy physical activity. We do this mainly through different types of cardio, playing a variety of sports and games. This class also gives students opportunities to learn and participate in different sports that they may not have the opportunity to experience otherwise. Gym class is also an opportunity for students to build character and push themselves to grow in different virtues as well as physical exercise. Kindness, teamwork, toughness, patience, are just some of the virtues ODE’s gym class celebrates.
