Message for parents:
Summer is here and with the warmer temperatures we will be spending more time inside. However, if your child is in a morning class and the weather is nice we will go outside. It’s a good idea to bring a water bottle to class but water is available here. Please make sure they have the appropriate clothing and footwear on P.E. days. Clothes you would wear to the gym are acceptable, they need to be able to move freely in them. No sandals, flip flops, chonklas or cowboy boots or high heeled shoes. 6-8 grade students enrolled in P.E. have class every day. They have lockers to keep their gym clothes in for the week and on Fridays should bring them home to wash for the next week. Students receive 10 points per day. 5 for dressing out and 5 for participation. Participation hasn’t been an issue but dressing out is. If you notice their grade is dropping it is most likely due to not dressing out regularly.
