Welcome to Physical Education at Peter Woodbury School. I am very excited about working with you and your child during the upcoming year. I know we will have an exciting and rewarding year in physical education. The physical education curriculum that your child will experience this year is based on the national and state physical education standards and best practices in teaching physical education. Throughout the year I will use school notes to inform you monthly what is happening in physical education class. I will post fitness calendars, all school and grade challenges and any other special projects that we will be involved in.
Because you are an integral part of your child's education, I feel home- school communication is of vital importance. There are several ways you can help your child succeed in physical education this year the following are some simple ways to start.
1. Ask your child what he or she learned in physical education each week. This simple routine will help your child to review class material and for you to determine if your child is concerned or having problems with anything in physical education.
2. Please help your child establish a regular time and place to get some physical activity outside of the school day.
3. Please help your child come prepared to physical education class this year by wearing sneakers that tie on the foot or fit snugly and cool comfortable clothing such as t-shirts, shorts, sweats, or jogging suits. Wearing layers is suggested in case we go outside for class.
