Education Through Athletics

Zion students receive physical education instruction twice a week, in which they are introduced to a variety of sports and teamwork activities. 

  • Respect- to display and embody the philosophy of good sportsmanship behavior.

  • Discipline- to push yourself to be and do your best on a daily basis.

  • Teamwork- to work together, share, compliment each other and achieve more as a team than by oneself.

  • Listening- to reinforce the importance of being a good listener by following rules and directions of games and applying what is heard from classmates, teachers and parent

  • Faith- to understand that God gives us challenges every day so that we learn to never give up no matter how arduous the task.

In addition to P.E. classes during the school day, students also can participate in after-school competitive sports.
