Physical Education Expectations:
All students attend Specials every day.
District policy requires all children wear TENNIS SHOES in Physical Education for their own safety. These shoes must have white soles, or scuff-proof black soles. Sandals, sandal backs, boots, cleated shoes, dress shoes, shoes with rollers, and slip-on shoes will not be allowed.
****If your child does not want to wear tennis shoes to school, please send them in their backpack.
Remind them to change into their tennis shoes before leaving the classroom for Specials that day.
****Girls need to wear shorts under dresses or skirts.
Please help your child be responsible. Children will not be allowed to participate without proper shoes or shorts under their dresses/skirts.
Failure to wear the appropriate attire will result in a lowered participation grade.
Please send a note if your child needs to be excused from P.E.
A doctor’s note is required if the child must miss three or more days of P.E.
“If a child brings a doctor’s/parent note excluding him/her from physical education, the same restrictions will apply at recess."
Doctor’s notes will be the guideline for when your child is allowed to return to physical activity.
Grades will be recorded each nine-week grading period. Students will receive two grades: Skills and Conduct. Skills grades are based on skills tests, written assignments, participation and cooperation.These grades start at an E.
