From the Gym
All students must have a pair of non marking running shoes to wear while in the gym; Bare feet or socked feet are not permitted due to safety concerns.
Students in grades 3 through 5 are expected to change into gym strip for their gym class. Appropriate gym strip is essential for the health and safety of the students, and includes a pair of shorts or track pants, a T-shirt, and a pair of non-marking running shoes. Gym strip should be kept in a bag in the student’s classroom and be taken home weekly for washing. Failure to wear gym strip will adversely affect the student’s P.A. mark.
During P.A. class, students will also be required to remove jewelry, including watches. This policy was put into place by the school board in order to prevent injury and also to prevent loss or damage of jewelry. It is advisable that students leave jewelry at home on gym days.
I am looking forward to an exciting year. I would sincerely appreciate your help in making this year a successful one. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the school with any questions or concerns that you may have.
