Middle School Spanish & Physical Education


We are very proud of our Spanish program. Middle School students receive Spanish instruction each week. Our Spanish program is scheduled opposite the Physical Education (PE) class. The 5th through 8th grade girls attend Spanish class when the 5th through 8th grade boys are attending PE. Alternately, the 5th through 8th grade boys attend Spanish class when the 5th through 8th grade girls are in PE.

Elementary School Students receive instruction throughout the school year, once per week by a qualified Spanish teacher or by SPIVA Elementary Spanish, a video program presented by Northern Arizona University.


Physical Education

The St. Anne & St. Jude Catholic School K-8th grade Physical Education program applies the Diocese of Charleston curriculum which is based on the National Association for Sport and Physical Education standards and the South Carolina Academic Standards of Physical Education. We strive to develop the whole child: physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally, within a safe learning environment.  Students are provided opportunities to engage in various activities with the focus of developing and reinforcing flexibility, muscular strength/endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance.  Activities are also planned and designed to develop perceptual motor skills, gross loco-motor movements, manipulative skills, social and emotional skills, cooperative skills, competitive skills, and good sportsmanship.  Students are introduced to many fun activities that can also be enjoyed outside of school hours and are encouraged to value and achieve a lifetime of healthful fitness.
