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, complement 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
