    Subject:  Welcome to Physical Education Class

     

                Elementary school is a very special time in your child’s growth and development.  As a part of their educational program, every student will receive one or two forty minute physical education classes per week with a certified physical education teacher.  The following rules have been implemented to help ensure the health and safety of your child:

     

    ·        Sneakers with ties or velcro are required to participate in physical education class.

    ·        No jewelry is to be worn during physical education class.  All watches, rings, bracelets and necklaces are to be left in the classroom.  If your child has pierced ears, post earrings are acceptable.  Earrings that dangle below the ear are not permissible due to the fact that they could get caught and tear the ear lobe.

    ·        If your child wears glasses, please contact the school nurse, Mrs. Brooks.

    ·      When your child(ren) are not in school we recommend that they go outside and play for 60 minutes everyday!

    ·      If you are a 100% remote learner please refer to the Monthly Activity/Fitness Calendar on my website and choose a minimum of 3 activities each week. Calendars must be submitted to me on the last day of the month.  I have included other opportunities and resources for you to enjoy yourself or as a family at home.  It doesn't matter what you choose to keep yourself active, just keep moving and have FUN!

    ·      If you are a hybrid learner we recommend that you go outside and play for 60 minutes everyday.  I have included other resources and a Monthly Activity/Fitness Calendar on my website. Here you will find find fun games and fitness related activies for you and your family. Please stay active and have FUN!  

    ·      Masks must be worn at all times.  Mask breaks will be given throughout the class and as needed.

    ·        If your child needs to be excused from physical education class, please write a note to the physical education teacher/school nurse stating the reason.  If your child is to be excused from participation for more than one week, a doctor’s note is required.  It must state the reason, length of time and date when they can resume activities.

    ·        All students participate in physical education class in their school clothes.  It is recommended students wear comfortable clothing on physical education days.  We encourage students to dress for the weather (layer if needed) because we will be utilizing the outdoors as much as possible this school year.  If your child must wear a dress, please have her wear shorts or pants underneath her outfit.

    ·        Your child’s physical education grade will be based on fitness, skill progression, listening and following directions, respect, responsibility and cooperation with the teacher(s) and other students in class.  

     

     

    If you have any questions at anytime, please contact me at school.  I am looking forward to working together to have a happy, healthy and successful school year!
