I am very excited about the new school year and teaching Physical Education to your children. I would like to tell you about your child’s Physical Education program.
Students in grades K-6 attend P.E. class twice a week for 40 minutes. Each child will need a pair of sneakers for class and should wear appropriate clothing for large motor activities. Their program consists of an emphasis on gross motor activities include: Throwing, catching, kicking, striking, balancing, locomotor movement skills (running, skipping, sliding, hopping, jumping, and leaping). Additional units may include gymnastics, rhythms, and physical fitness. Classes will be held in the gymnasium or outside on the playing fields, weather permitting.
Boys and girls in grades 5-6 will be assigned a locker with a combination lock and are expected to change for class. Clothing to be kept in their locker should include:
*t-shir, shorts, socks, sweatshirt, and sweatpants
*Sneakers do not have to be kept in lockers but should be worn in every class
*Clothes that the students wear to school that day should not be worn in P.E.
Intermediate students will receive a broad introduction into team sports, fitness, and individual sports: football, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, softball, track, and dance.
Classes are held outside during the fall and spring months unless raining. Please make sure your child has warm clothing in their locker to be worn during P.E. class on cold days.
I really enjoy teaching physical education and look forward to working with your children. Throughout the year, please feel free to discuss any questions with me.
