GRADE 7&8 PHYSICAL EDUCATION UPDATE
During the month of February, our Grade 7& 8 students will be traveling to Pippy Park to take part in winter outdoor activities – cross country skiing and snowshoeing - to meet curriculum requirements for Physical Education. Instructors employed by the City of St. John’s will be on hand to teach proper techniques for each activity. For more information and to access the required permission form please go here.



GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS


IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be advised that all student athletes, coaches, and parents who enter St. Paul's gym are asked to remove footwear upon entering the facility. You may place your outdoor footwear outside the gym doors on the mat. Please bring a second pair of indoor shoes to wear in the gym. With the winter weather it is extremely difficult to keep the gym clean and safe.


Reminders to Parents/Guardians of Student Athletes:

  • Involvement with any school team is voluntary and user-pay. Please remember that our coaches are volunteers and that fees associated with involvement are paid on time so that the team may participate in planned events. Please note, at St. Paul’s we ensure that if a child is selected to a team that the cost of involvement does not prohibit any student from being involved. If you have any concerns please contact the coach or Mr. Smith

  • As per NLESD policy, school doors are to remain locked at all times. Therefore please remember that doors will not be left open nor will coaches leave something in the door for students arriving late to practices. There is a buzzer located outside that will ring in the gym alerting someone of your arrival

  • Once practices are over, students must be picked up immediately

  • Parents/guardians and other spectators are reminded that at St. Paul’s we appreciate the time our coaches have volunteered and hope that you will show up to show positive support when teams enter competition. Although not always understood or agreed upon by spectators, our coaches always make their decisions in the best interest of the team. We encourage the parents/guardians of all student athletes to review the Parent/Guardian Code of Conduct at http://teacherweb.com/NF/StPaulsJuniorHighSchool/Smith/apt22.aspx


**Reminder that practices and tryouts are for students and coaches only. Students should be dropped off early and rides arranged immediately following the conclusion
