The Xcel 2 Fitness Spring season is coming up! Xcel 2 Fitness is an after school program for 3rd-5th grade boys with a mission to use fitness to impact character. The program is carried out through a 6-week curriculum at the school that engages the team of boys through fun speed, agility, strength, balance, and cardio challenges. Every session is embedded with character development through encouraging boys to find their passion, build their team in life, and develop the grit to overcome their obstacles in pursuit of their dreams! The program functions after school 2 days each week for 1 hour.
Kindergarten has had a busy month. We’ve been learning all about living and nonliving things with a focus on animals and their characteristics. We studied owls and ended our unit with a visit from the Carolina Raptor Center. They brought 4 different raptors, 2 which were owls. The students loved seeing the different raptors, especially the owls.
Sun Valley Elementary School is building its legacy and has turned its focus on Boosterthon for help. This year the school is raising money for its book room, which will empower teachers with resources to improve literacy. The central focus of this year’s Boosterthon character program was “Backyard Box Office.” Principal Susan Rodgers said, “Our Awesome Boosterthon Team is adding to our legacy by building up our staff with positive notes! It is a great day in the Valley!”
