On behalf of the PE department, I'd like to welcome all our families and students back to Scott M. Ellis! We hope you had a relaxing summer. We are looking forward to another successful and fun year in PE!
Most classes attended PE today minus three fifth grades. They will begin tomorrow. Today students were introduced to their exercise spots. Then we discussed rules and expectations. The major focus of these conversations revolved around safety, kindness, and following directions.
A few reminders regarding PE:
1) Grades K-3 have PE daily. Grades 4 & 5 four days a week.
2) Sneakers need to be worn everyday for PE class. Please send your child to school with sneakers.
3) Jewelry needs to removed in order to participate in PE. Earrings are a major safety concern. Please teach your child how to remove their earrings. Newly pierced ears will be taped until they are allowed to be removed.
4) Skirts and dresses can be worn to PE only if the child wears shorts or leggings underneath. This is a privacy issue as we exercise daily.
Check back daily for updates about our day in PE!
