At LMES, we offer three standard specials to every grade level: art, music, and physical education. Students will experience each of these subjects with a certified specialist for 45 minutes, once per week. Each grade level will have an evening music program, and Super Kids day is an outdoor physical fitness event we celebrate as well. A typical music
class may consist of instruments, singing, composing, creating, and/or
Lake Myra's Physical
Education program aligns with National Standards and goals and
objectives, as per the framework (CMAPP) provided by Wake County Public
School System. These objectives encompass the cognitive, affective, and
motor domains, and activities are designed to enhance each student's
physical, mental, social, and emotional development. Safety is always a
priority; great care is taken to present lessons that promote a safe,
fun, active learning environment! Physical fitness activities are
incorporated in daily lessons and instruction includes movement
exploration, sport skill development, and lead-up games/activities.
Whenever possible, an interdisciplinary approach is presented, in
attempt to support other academic areas, such as math, language arts,
social studies, science, art, and music. Participation in tasks promote
working individually, with partners, and/or as a member of a team.
Competition is minimalized, as each student is encouraged to improve
upon his/her personal goals! So far this year, activities have focused
on: spatial awareness, non-locomotor and locomotor movement skills,
dance, cooperative games, and fitness. Students have been receptive to
the activities; they are learning new skills, have improved in many
areas, and most importantly, they are having fun!
Additionally, all students have Focus, Guidance and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
