Lakewood is excited to offer an intramural sports program to our 4th and 5th grade students.
Lakewood’s intramural program will provide our 5th graders an opportunity to participate in physical activity in a safe environment during recess time. These activities are designed for fun and movement. We believe that students develop physical fitness as well as good character and leadership skills through organized play and positive competition. Research shows that students involved in physical activity show improved concentration and are ready to learn. Studies also show a positive correlation between a student’s fitness level and standardized test scores. Through our intramural program we hope to encourage students to make healthy choices inside and outside of school and to get involved in physical activity in their neighborhoods and in organized sports teams, gymnastics, and dance.
