Excuse Procedure:


                Any student who needs to be excused from Physical Education class due to injury or illness must have a note from their parent/guardian or the school nurse.  Should a student’s injury or illness causes him/her to miss one week of classes, then a written note from the doctor is required.  Please make every effort to get a note from the attending doctor explaining the nature of the injury/illness, defining activities which will be off limits, and the amount of time out needed from class.

Format of Class:


          *Students will come in & circle time



            *Teach Skills & activities

            *Closing discussion (circle time)





            Students must always warm-up before they stretch.  When we warm-up we deliver oxygen to the working muscles, increase heart-rate, blood flow, body and muscle temperature, and elongate muscle fibers.  Once the body begins to perspire, we are ready to stretch.  There are many activities, which can be used to get the students warmed up.



Benefits of Stretching:


                Stretching is the only way to improve flexibility. Stretching can decrease the possibilities of injury, increase self-awareness, and enhance athletic performance.  Providing students with a structural stretching routine is key to improving flexibility and preparing students for physical activity.
