Athletics at the French American Academy
“Mens sana in corpore sano”
Athletics are an essential part of the French American Academy. Whether it is gross motor skills in preschool and Kindergarten classes or Physical Education in grades 1 to 8, we value the importance of a healthy lifestyle which includes:
Winning the AEFE Dance Competition
Dance is as much an art as it is a sport. The French American Academy won the 1st place in the World Competition AEFE Dance Challenge!
Athletics in Prek-K
From 2 to 5 years old, the children participate in daily physical fitness activities. They improve body awareness, spatial boundaries, coordination, and control during their gross motor skills sessions.
Athletics in Elementary and Middle School
Starting in 1st grade and each year, the physical education teacher will guide students through 4 components of our Athletics curriculum (activities vary depending on the grade):
Physical education classes can also use traditional games with or without a ball which can be an opportunity for cultural exchanges. The students can play dodgeball but also “Éperviers sortez”, “Poules Renards, Vipères” or “balles au prisonnier”.
Our students can’t wait for the Annual FAA Field Day where students play many games in teams that include younger and older students. A fun moment to build our community of students.
