Welcome to Physical Education

Physical education is a great place to learn and explore how our bodies move.  Much of the curriculum is based upon fitness and skill instruction while incorporating games to reinforce the intended goals and concepts.  Nothing beats learning, laughing, and pink cheeks! I can assure you that PE is chocked full of each!

Please remember that tennis shoes and sneakers are the safest shoe to wear to school. I do understand having adorable shoes to coordinate with an outfit, but ultimately, safety is our primary concern.  In addition to PE class, your child will participate in recess outside on the playground daily.  Furthermore, school policy states that if your child is wearing unsafe or improper footwear, they may not use the playground equipment.

As you develop and refine school-home routines, please try to get into the habit of knowing your child’s encore schedule (PE, art, music, library, technology, and guidance). PE comes after library in the rotation.

As an incentive for students to wear athletic footwear to physical education class, I have a sticker chart on the gym wall. Each time the entire class is outfitted properly, a sticker is earned. After 10 stickers the students will vote for their favorite games to play and they will get to play those games on a designated date. My goal is that the students would get this opportunity 2-3 times throughout the year.
