Texan Physical Education Dept.

Volume 1 - Monday, August 28, 2017

New School Year, New P.E. Department

Can you believe school is already in session and summer is over?! The beginning of school is so exciting for teachers and students. Teachers are excited to try new activities and strategies. Students are excited about seeing their old friends and making new ones.

My goal as your child's physical education teacher is to make sure your child gets the most out of life. I want to show your child that there are many ways to be active so they can lead a long and healthy life. I look forward to guiding your child to reach their goals. Let's go Texans!

September BACK TO SCHOOL Challenge

Print out this month's challenge (see link below). Be sure to have a parent/guardian sign it at the end of the month and bring it in to Coach K.

What You Can Do

Move and play with your child as much as you can and model good healthy habits. Creating these habits begins NOW.

Emphasize the importance of following directions and putting forth their best effort in class. Ask your student what they learned not what they played each day.

Understand that if your child cannot participate due to illness or injury, a parent note is required stating why they cannot participate and for how long. After 3 days, a doctor's note is required.

Help them come to class prepared with proper tennis shoes. Help your child learn how to tie their shoes so they will be safe while participating!
