Physical Education Guidelines

Dear Parents/Guardians:


Welcome to another exciting year of school at Roundtown Elementary.  As you are probably already aware, part of your child’s schedule will consist of one or two physical education classes.  As your child’s physical education teacher, I ask that you help to prepare your son/daughter for physical education class by understanding and following these guidelines:


1. If they own sneakers, please have your child wear them for physical education.  If they do not wear sneakers, they may slip on the gym floor.  If we are outside, sneakers are more comfortable and appropriate for outdoor activities.

 

2. Please have your child wear clothes they can easily move around in for physical education.  (i.e. girls – no dresses/skirts)  **note- this does not necessarily mean shorts or sweat suits, but something comfortable to move in.

 

3. Weather permitting; we will spend some time outside.  So, please have your child bring a jacket/sweatshirt when they have physical education, if needed.

 

4. If for any reason your child can not participate in physical education class (injury, illness), please send a written excuse to school to give to me.  Also, a second note is needed when your child may return to class.  Please send both notes if this occurs.

 

5. Finally, please encourage your child to participate in ALL physical education activities to the best of his/her ability.  Participation is extremely important, and I want every student to be active and enjoy themselves in physical education.


I am looking forward to a super year with your child at Roundtown Elementary School.  Thank you for your time and help.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
