Rosslyn Academy Elementary School offers a wide variety of clubs, teams, and groups outside of the regular classroom, and students are encouraged to participate to enhance and enrich their academic experience. Physical Education classes are held twice a week for each grade. These classes are designed to develop the appropriate skills, team learning, and attitudes at each developmental level while also teaching the fundamentals of sports ranging from swimming to football.
Intramural sports are held after school one day a week for the 3rd through 5th graders. All students are encouraged to participate, and all who do so play in the games. Emphasis is on participation, enjoyment, and learning game skills. This activity is usually held on Monday afternoons after school.
There are normally four sports seasons with final games in each season held from 2:30 – 3:30 on a school day. Sports seasons typically include soccer, softball/kickball, field hockey and basketball. Since Track and Field is made up of age level competition, 5th graders may join this all-school sport during the 4th quarter. In addition, an after-school competitive swim team is available to all students, from kingergarten to 12th grade, who are able to complete the minimum safe swimming requirements. This swim team practices at the swimming pool on Rosslyn Academy’s campus.
An additional special activity is the annual Sports’ Day. This is an Elementary and Middle School all-day program built around a core of track and field experiences and culminates the track and field Phys. Ed. unit. Older students, staff and parents help with directing the events on this very enjoyable day.
