RAWLINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
PHYSICAL EDUCATION EXPECTATIONS
Your child will be participating in Physical Education for 50 minutes, three times a week at Rawlings Elementary. By gaining early success in the basic physical skills and concepts, your child will feel better about their ability to participate in recreational activities; be more successful if they choose to compete in youth sports leagues, and find the intrinsic value of being physically active. In addition, they will be developing lifelong physical fitness habits. Their success in physical education impacts their success in school.
Physical Education Expectations
Consider safety at all times
Responsibility for personal behavior
Respect rights and feelings of others
Be an active learner with all activities
Use equipment properly and as directed
If your child is sick or cannot participate in physical education, please write a note to the classroom teacher or physical education teacher. A doctor’s note will be required if the child cannot participate for more than three days. Please notify your child’s physical education teacher directly if they have any physical or chronic health concerns that may limit their participation in P.E. class.
Attire for Physical Education
Proper shoes are the most important item for physical education. Your child needs to wear sneakers or rubber soled closed toe shoes. Boots, dress shoes, and sandals including Crocs are inappropriate for the type of activities your child will be doing in physical education. It is advisable for girls to wear shorts under dresses or skirts so they can feel comfortable participating in all the activities we have planned. In addition, please label all sweaters, coats and jackets.
If you have any questions during the year we can be reached at 547-7828.
