Fitness and Wellness
The Chartwell Fitness and Wellness program, for both lower and middle school, is designed to guide students in three primary areas: psychomotor, cognitive, and affective (social emotional). In the psychomotor aspect of our program, students explore activities to gain a basic understanding of the skills needed for playing sports and games and learn how to keep their bodies fit and healthy. The cognitive aspect of our program explores the mental aspect of the games, including rules and strategy. The affective aspect of our program focuses on teamwork skills to develop the necessary tools for problem solving and to promote self-esteem. The students are encouraged to resolve disagreements by means of cooperation, team building, respect and compromise.
Middle School students also have the opportunity to additionally compete in our interscholastic sports program to further develop their skills in basketball, volleyball, soccer, golf, and tennis.
