What's Happening in PE

Throughout the school year we will be doing many activities and games to promote physical and social awareness, build integrity, establish positive social/behavioral skills, encourage individual growth and team work, use problem solving strategies and incorporate an attitude of "willingness to always try."

Our P.E. activities during the year will usually consist of warm-up exercises, learning the basic fundamentals used in traditional sports, learn new games/concepts, be involved in some type of movement for at least 70% of class time, do at least one community money raising project, collect Box Tops and Tyson Chicken Project A+ labels.  We will end the year with a Super FUN Field Day.  

I will also have open gym during the year, by grade level.  Your child can come after school and learn skills, and then play the game of basketball against their peers.   We have a blast!!!  So look for dates in an up coming news letters. 

PE Requirements
The P. E. Department does have certain requirements.  The State requires that students 3rd - 5th grade take part in the "Fitness Gram Assessment."  A student's fitness in in six components is evaluated to see where his/her fitness level falls.  Grades ARE NOT taken on the results; just an evaluation.  1st - 5th grade are given grades in P.E.  These grades are based mainly on class responsibilities (behavior, participation & campus/district policies) and dress code.  His/her physical ability is not the emphasis for grading; if the student is doing their best, then that's all I ask.  

The student does have a basic dress code to follow.  TENNIS shoes are necessary; this will provide better performance and safety (points will be deducted off their grade for each day they do not wear tennis shoes).  The shoes need to fit and stay on the foot securely.  NO sandals, flip flops/crocs, boots of any kind and/or roller shoes.  Wearing the proper clothing during P.E. will provide safety, performance and modesty (shorts under skirts/dresses, etc.).

Students are not allowed to chew gum in P.E. (10 points off their grade).  This is imperative in an active P.E. class.  

If a student should not participate in P.E. due to an illness or injury, please send a note or contact me through email, text or phone.  If it is a prolonged illness, a doctor's note is required.  


Each year a Basketball Program called PIPS, (Players In Progress) is offered on Wednesdays, after school.   This program teaches your child how to be self disciplined and self motivated.  They learn a Basketball routine, and then perform at the home Basketball games, and if possible, a College game. Coaches for this year are Annie Young, Jalaina Foster, and Andi Bradley.  If you are interested in helping out or if you would like more info about the program, please call Annie @ (806) 946-8900.

The district is responsible for helping all students achieve their fullest potential since all students can learn.
