P.E. rules and guidelines           

Boys PE- Each quarter will consist of 2-3 different activities.  Each unit will last approximately 2-3 weeks with a written test or skills test at the end of the unit. They will also participate in fitness testing at the beginning of each quarter that should take no more than 2 weeks. We will track students progress throughout the year and see how they improve. 

Here are a few tips for P.E. 

1- Have a lock ready for your PE locker. Combination locks are preferred.

2- Black shorts and a white or grey t-shirt are required for daily PE, as well as gym shoes that will stay in the locker room.

3- Deodorant is needed for use after class. Try to avoid spray can. 

4- Be ready to work hard and have a good time. Positive attitudes have positive outcomes.

5- PE clothes go home AT THE END OF EACH WEEK for cleaning and brought back on Monday.  It is a good idea to pack your clothes Sunday night in order to avoid forgetting them in the Monday morning rush.

Remember, all items should be locked in your locker and clothes are required  EVERY DAY.
