Welcome to Physical Education at Hoover Elementary
Your student will have PE two times most weeks of school for the entire 2016-17 school year. It is really important for each Hoover Husky to dress for activity on their PE days- this includes the proper shoes. I prefer shoes that are soft soled, close toed and it should connect at least to the heel (toe protection and to keep the shoe in place). Grades 1st-5th go outside whenever possible and kick footballs and soccer balls and do other activities on the playground as well as the field. It’s perfectly alright to bring another pair of shoes to school to change into before coming to PE if they aren’t wearing safe PE shoes.
PE is an active class so dressing for activities is very important. When possible, I will tell classes what is coming up so they can plan ahead.
If your student for any reason must sit out of PE, please call the office and leave a message for me or send a note with your child in the morning. For grades 3-5, I will have alternative written assignments that will be completed during PE for them to do (if they bring homework from their class, they can also do that).
Currently we have been working on playground type activities (K-2) and football skills (3-5). As long as we are able this fall, we will be outside. When we do get pushed in, we will work on volleyball skills as well as hand-eye coordination activities.
Lifelong activity is my focus for students here at Hoover. Whenever possible I relate what we are doing to where and how they can add these activities into their regular life.
