KIND – 3RD GRADE STUDENTS: have Physical Education 47 minutes twice a week. Your child needs to come prepared with sneakers. Preferably tie sneakers. Zipper, velcro and stretch sneakers tend to come loose frequently and make it difficult for your child to participate comfortably. We also encourage girls to wear pants on PE days. Dresses and skirts make it difficult to move through the various activities we have planned throughout the class period.
4TH, 5TH GRADE STUDENTS: have Physical Education for 47 minutes twice a week. Besides having proper sneakers, they also need a change of clothes. Students will use the locker room daily and must change. Shorts and a t-shirt must be appropriate (no tank tops or spaghetti straps) Students can also wear sweat pants or sweatshirts during the cooler weather. Please remind students not to bring their PE clothes home to be washed until they have brought a clean pair to change into. By following this simple rule your child will never be unprepared for class. Students need a combination lock (Master) to leave things in a locker. A towel, deodorant, pony tail band for those students with longer hair are also suggested.
As required by New York State Law, your child will have physical education twice a week. If your child is unable to participate in Physical Education class due to an injury or illness, please have written note from a physician, parent, or guardian. If he/she needs to be excused for more than two consecutive classes, a note from a doctor is necessary.
