P.L.A.E. - People Learning and Exercising Information for 6th & 7th grade families.
PLAE is a before school intramural program for 6th and 7th graders that was created by Mr. Jones in 2003. At PLAE, we play large group games that can accommodate 50+ students. Research shows that students are more effective learners if they exercise before school. Build a routine at home that benefits you in the classroom! Wake up early, grab a healthy breakfast, meet new friends and have a blast doing it! What’s not to love?!
6th Grade PLAE: Tuesday & Friday from 6:40am - 7:40am
7th Grade PLAE: Monday & Thursday from 6:40am - 7:40am
PLAE is part of our intramural program here at King Philip. This means that you must complete an intramural permission slip and pay the $25 activity fee. Our intramural programs are “drop-in” offerings. This means that you can come as you please. If you enjoy it, come back! If it’s not for you, that’s ok too.
PLAE begins at 6:40 in the morning. If your child is interested in participating, we need them to arrive at 6:40. If your child is late, they can miss important directions and may have to sit out for part or all of that morning. Thank you in advance!
Contact Mr. Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
