PE Newsletter with Mrs. Thomas
January at La Conner Elementary
At La Conner Elementary PHYSICAL FITNESS and SPORTSMANSHIP are our main focus. This month we will be working on our basketball skills. We will learn a lot about dribbling, passing, and proper shooting form in the game of basketball. Ask your child to show you their skills! We will also be learning some Winter and holiday games to celebrate the month of January.
Please make sure your student wears appropriate tennis shoes on PE days. The schedule for your child’s class can be found on my website and a refrigerator note was sent home with your child. Tennis shoes are super important to keep our kids safe!
Healthy kids make better students.
Better students make healthy communities.
The safety of our students is very important to us. Before each activity we will model the activity and discuss the rules and student expectations. Students participate during PE classes at their own skill level. The behavior rules for every PE class, to ensure the safety of all students, are:
- BE NICE.
- BE CAREFUL.
- BE RESPECTFUL.
- STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN ON THE SIGNAL.
- KEEP HANDS, FEET, AND OTHER OBJECTS TO YOURSELF.
FITNESS IS FOR EVERY-BODY!
