Parents, in order to make PE fun and safe for our students, please encourage your child to wear athletic shoes (tennis shoes). Athletic shoes provide better foot and ankle support when students are running, jumping, skipping, hopping, dodging, and changing directions. Dress shoes, flip flops, sandals, and boots are not safe for PE. Our students are at greater risk of injuring their feet, ankles, or legs when wearing these types of shoes. Students will be allowed to use the restroom during PE only if it is an emergency. Class will end five minutes early so students can have water. Frequent trips to the water fountain are prohibited. Parents, please learn your child's PE schedule in order to make PE fun and safe for them.
The first week of school in PE, the students will learn the rules and procedures of PE class. Then, the next week, the students will learn their daily stretches and exercises. Also, the students will be learning how to run, skip, gallop, and hop the correct way. During the first few weeks of PE, the main focus will be rules and procedures, stretches and exercises, and loco-motor skills.
