What Your Child Needs:

On your child’s P.E. days, they will need to bring their P.E. shoes! If your student wears sandals, boots, flats, or anything other than gym shoes, please make sure that they have a pair of clean P.E. shoes in their book bag. If your student does wear boots, sandals, etc. they will have to sit out of P.E. class for that day. 

Injuries and illnesses happen throughout the year. If your child is too sick to participate in class, please write a note to excuse them from class for that day. If your child is injured, please have a doctor write a note, excusing them of class. When your child is ready to come back to class, the nurse, and I will need a note releasing them back into my class. 


During the school year, we will be in many units focusing on sportsmanship, fitness, teamwork, and skills. Here are some of the unit/activities that we will be doing this year!

Soccer                                     Fitness

Basketball                              Paddle and Ball

Volleyball                               Small Equipment

Football                                  Bowling                      

T-Ball                                      Throwing and Catching

Jump Rope    



Kid's Heart Challenge: The 3rdgrade students will be participating in our annual Kid's Heart Challenge event! This is a great event where the students raise money for the American Heart Association. At the end of raising money, the students have a jump rope event that takes place in the morning! Last year, we raised over $12,000 for the American Heart Association! The date for Jump Rope For Heart is to be determined later on this year. 

FIELD DAY: This is an end of the year event where students are able to participate in some of their favorite activities that we did during the year! This is a great way to end the year and have the entire school outside at one time! More info to come later!
