    Subject:  Welcome to Physical Education Class


                Middle school is a fun, challenging and rewarding time in your child’s growth and development.  As a part of their educational program,  students will receive PE everyday (grade 5)  or every other day (grades 6-8) with a certified physical education teacher.  The following rules have been implemented to help ensure the health and safety of your child:


    ·        Sneakers 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 their school assigned locker.  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. 

    ·        If your child needs to be excused from physical education class, please write a note to the 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.

    ·        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 outside as much as possible this school year.  If your child must wear a dress, please have them wear shorts or pants underneath their outfit.

    ·        Each PE class will be worth 5 points.  Students will receive a numerical grade for Physical Education at the end of each semester.  Students and/or parents may check the portal weekly for their PE grade.  



    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!
