The AM intramural programs run before the student day begins and are offered to students in Grades 2-5. These programs are not sport specific, rather the focus is on getting our MES students active and healthy to start their day!
Activities include tag games, fitness challenges, team games, and more! The program uses a variety of equipment, such as scooters, hula-hoops, jump ropes, soccer-balls, etc. to ensure the students have fun and get moving!
The intramural programs are split up based on the grade level of the child PE Minors (2nd-3rd) and PE Majors (4th-5th). To learn more and to sign up for the programs, check out the AM intramural webpage.
