Hello Charlestown Families,I am delighted to have your child in Health and Physical Education class again this year. As you may already know, P.E. classes are scheduled twice in a six day cycle for 45 minutes. We will also have one health class per grade level for each marking period.
For your child’s safety, I strongly recommend that each student wear sneakers during physical education class. Dress shoes, cowboy boots, sandals, flip flops, clogs, crocs, or unlaced sneakers do not supply proper support to your child’s feet and ankles. This increases the risk of injury as there is a lot of movement involved in my class.
Your child will receive a grade in physical education and health on the report card for all three marking periods. Grades in my class depend on three factors: behavior, participation, and having fun. If for any reason your child must miss physical education class due to an injury or illness, I ask that you send me a note with your child or contact me at school.
I have many fun and exciting activities/events planned for your child this upcoming year. I invite you to attend these special events. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
