Physical Education (PE)

During this school year your child will have the opportunity to be exposed to many different activities in P.E. class. It is very important for your child to always be properly dressed. Please write down the days your child has P.E. and post it on the refrigerator. This will also help your child remember their P.E. days. Proper dress includes shorts, skorts or pants and sneakers that fully cover their feet. (Sandals and boots are not proper attire for P.E. Not wearing proper shoes will have a negative effect on their grade.

Below is a list of activities that may be used during the school year in P.E. If the activity is followed by a (K-2) or (3-5) this designates the specific grade levels involved:
