Xcel 2 Fitness is an after school program for 3rd-5th grade boys that empowers boys to overcome their obstacles and chase their dreams. Each session starts with a character discussion that addresses teamwork, leadership, or goal setting. The boys are then led through a strategic warm-up routine to get their bodies physically ready to exercise. Once warmed up, boys rotate through 2 different challenges that target a specific fitness concept: speed, strength, agility, balance, or cardio. The boys come together as a whole group to compete against one another in a “showdown” based on the skills worked on during the challenges. Boys wind down the session with a cool down that focuses on stretching. Coaches end the session by reviewing the character discussion and leaving the boys with some at-home challenges. Sessions last 6 weeks. We will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays from 2:00-3:30 once the season begins. Registration begins the week of September 12. Season begins the week of October 10.

BHESA's staff is committed to continuous learning and improvement, which is why we are asking for donations to aid in the implementation of FranklinCovey’s The Leader in Me (TLIM) whole-school transformation process for the 2016-2017 school year.
The Leader in Me is aligned with state academic standards and concepts. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups. It also, provides a logical, sequential, and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision. Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts’s vision is: “Prepare learners; empower leaders.”
We hope you consider donating to our cause so our staff and students may: "Learn, lead, love, and leave a legacy." Please feel free to share the link:
