Welcome to Physical Education !
Why is Physical Education Important?
Physical Education is important because it provides physical fitness, skill development, self discipline, sets goals for ourselves, and it improves student’s judgments. Physical Education also benefits children by teaching them motor skills of balance, running, throwing, and walking. Lastly, physical education is important because what the students learned in the classroom they can use it outside of school and stay active outside of school and live a healthy lifestyle instead of staying behind a computer or playing video games.

Dear Parents or Guardian,
I want to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another year of Physical Education. I would like to inform you of some of the rules, and grading for Physical Education class. Safety is my number one concern with your children in the gym and outside or in the classroom. Therefore the following rules have been developed in order to keep them safe. Your child needs to wear sneakers in order to participate in Physical Education class. Their sneakers should cover their entire foot. Leaving a part of the foot exposed could lead to injury while participating in class. Their sneakers should also have laces, or straps that go across the shoes. This will help the shoe stay on while they actively participate in Physical Education class. Cleats, Uggs, Crocs, flats and shoes that show their toes will not be allowed at any time during the year. No Jewelry should be worn on days your child has Physical Education class with the exception of medical alert bracelets and studded earrings. Please send in a note if your child is excused from P.E. for any reason. A note from a doctor or parent is required to be excused for P.E. as per the health office guidelines.
