Dietz Physical Education

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It’s another great year at Ludwig School. We are ready to get back into the swing of things. I am very happy to be a part of the teaching staff at Ludwig School and in Will County School District 92.

Your child will learn a wide array of skills from different activities. We will instruct the students in basic sport skills such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, tumbling, etc… Other skills we will centered in games such as capture the flag, star wars, name that muscle, etc… We also have a climbing wall that your child will get to climb on through our fitness days. We will also be learning the game of golf through the First Tee Program. Our goal is to expose your child to a wide variety of sports so that they can make informed choices when it comes to sport leagues or pleasure. Through our physical education program, your child will demonstrate and deepen their knowledge of basic skills. They will be able to identify and apply rules and safety procedures. Your child will also learn how to stretch properly and learn why it is important that they do so before any activity.

Your child will need a second pair of gym shoes for indoor activities, especially now that we have a brand new floor. Your child is not allowed to wear “SKATE” shoes. These shoes are very dangerous in a gym setting. They are not allowed to wear sandals or other footwear that are not proper for physical activity. Anyone wearing a dress or skirt will need to wear shorts underneath. Your child will lose points and be unable to participate if they are not prepared for class.

If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. I appreciate your support and look forward to meeting you.
