Please be sure that your child chooses the proper shoes on PE days. Whether our workout involves running, walking, sports or gym equipment, a decent athletic shoe is a must! Proper shoes can help to prevent foot and ankle damage and make our games and workouts a more pleasant and comfortable experience. We ask that all shoes have a flat bottom, cover the toes and heels, and stay securely on the feet when moving forward, sideways, and backwards.
