Dear Families and Students,


We want to welcome you to our NEW FACILITIES at GRAHAM! I am excited to being this new journey with your children!


IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Doctor’s Notes

If your child needs to be excused from fitness activities, please provide a doctor’s note explaining

.  why your child can not participate,

.  and a date when the child will be able to rejoin participation in class.

 

Gym Shoes

Your child will need gym shoes (sneakers, tennis shoes) to participate in activities.  They must have a flat bottom (no heel) and the foot must be fully covered. Sandals, Crocs, clogs, dress shoes, boots and any heeled shoes are not appropriate for class.  One way to always have your child prepared is to have an extra pair of gym shoes kept at school, in the classroom or kept in backpack.


RULES

Follow Directions                                         Ask for help when needed

Use equipment properly                               When you hear the whistle STOP, LOOK, & LISTEN

Play fairly                                                     Stay in the proper area

Be aware of your surroundings                     Keep hands and feet to yourself

WEAR PROPER TENNIS SHOES              NO FOOD, DRINK, OR CANDY ALLOWED IN GYM

NO PUSHING, HITTING, FIGHTING, OR BULLYING


This year students will learn and refine skills in the fitness areas at the bottom of the letter.  The skills are sequenced through the year with your child’s abilities in mind. The overall goal being to help your child learn, experience and be successful.   We define success as accomplishing skills rather than focusing on “winning” and “competition.”


I am here to make a positive impact in your child’s life.  If you have questions or information that might help me better work with your child please contact me.  I encourage you to come visit our school and meet with me at your convenience.
