The Notion of Motion...
Physical Education is a critical part of any student's experience during school hours. The ability to exert and enjoy physical activity during the day is at the base of healthy and focused students. Our children attend gym classes weekly where they play team sports or participate in individual skills assignments. The gym is full size and allows for any event that our instructor may direct. Rain or shine our kids are on the move!
Our younger students are on the playground at least once daily to enjoy playtime and physical activity. Our playground is large and allows for equipment play and " ball" games - basketball, four-square, kickball, etc. Our recess time is supervised by our teachers at all times.
Sports...Additional Team Spirit at Holy Cross
Sports and enrichment opportunities give children opportunities to shine in ways outside of academics and are also vital to building a strong school community. All of our students are encouraged to try a sport or activity; even one they may not be familiar or comfortable with. Through these activities, teamwork is increased, confidence builds and new friendships are made.
As a student at Holy Cross School, all of our students, even those who live in communities outside South Portland, are eligible to play on sports teams through the South Portland Rec Department. This would include soccer, basketball (in grades 4&5), and Lacrosse, as well as various other Rec department activites.
In addition we offer -
School sponsored basketball K-3 with other area Catholic and private schools
School sponsored basketball 5-8 in Boys and Girls Club League
Middle school tennis
Middle school opportunities through Southern Maine Catholic Team (with other local Catholic Schools) for Soccer, Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track, and Softball and Baseball.
