What do I need to wear to gym?
Gym shoes and a name shirt are required. The best gym shoes are the ones that tie. They stay on more securely. Velcro shoes are okay. Its a good idea to keep an old pair of gym shoes at school. For safety reasons, any student who does not have the proper shoes must sit out.Back to Top
Why do I need a name shirt?
The PE teachers are fortunate to get to see all the classes. That's a lot ofkids! We want to get to know you by name, so wearing a shirt with your nameclearly printed on it is very helpful for us.Back to Top
What are the goals of the PE classes?
Our most important goal is to get you physically fit while having fun. Wewill work on improving your strength, flexibility, and endurance through manytypes of activities. Another important goal is to teach you activities youcan do for a lifetime. That means activities you can do when you get older too.Back to Top
What will we do in PE?
We do a lot a different activities, but here is an example of a typical day.We start out with a few minutes of Fitness Time. This is a time when we work on improving cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength. Then we stretch. Stretching increasing flexibility and decreases the chance of us hurting our muscles during activity. We then move to our main activity of the day. This can be either a sport skill or a related game we play to improve our skills. Click on PE Weekly Units to see what we are doing each week. If we have time we end the class with a quick game and then Relaxation Time. Relaxation Time gives us a chance to catch our breath, get our heart rates back to resting rates, and get prepared to go back to the classrooms and learn!!! That's a lot to fit into 25 minutes, so we keep moving!Back to Top
How am I graded?
Students are graded on Behavior, Participation/Effort, and Skills/Concepts. A3 means you have exceeded expectations, a 2 means you have met expectations, and a 1 means you need to improve in that area.Back to Top
What if I am injured or sick and can't participate?
If you cannot play for any reason we need a note from home. A note from home is good for 3 days. After that a doctor's note is needed. We must get approval from the doctor that it is okay for you to start playing again.Back to Top
