ATHLETICS & ADVENTURE SPORTS

FernLeaf is a part of our local Hospitality League, which creates a league for local private and charter schools to compete against each other.

 

This league is a great place for students who have never participated in organized sports as well as those with experience. The focus is on creating a space for students to learn about athletic skills, to build leadership and team-building skills, to gain confidence in themselves, to participate in friendly competitions and, most importantly, to have fun.

 

FernLeaf students have the opportunity to play Flag Football in the Fall, Basketball in the Winter and Soccer in the Spring.

FernLeaf now has Adventure Sports offerings for the 2021-2022 school year!

12:00 - 1:00 PM

Odyssey of the Mind (OM™) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem – that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives. OM brings the classroom to life as students apply what they learn and combine it with their interests and passions to solve our unique open-ended problems. OM also emphasizes teamwork, budgeting, time management, public speaking, and so much more. This international program is designed to help students at all learning levels grow as individual learners, grow as team members, and to reach their full potential.
