Notes To Parents




Join us on the first 3 Wednesdays in October (October 4, 11 and 18).  Parents and Students meet on the sidewalk near Gorman Park (by the community center/public library).  We will gather between 7:20-7:29.  We will start walking to South at 7:30.  Students must have an adult walking with them for safety, exercise and connecting!


The cost of rollerskating has increased from $8.00 to $9.00 this year.  With the schedule change, students will get to skate for $1.00 or less because they will get at least 9 days of skating!

Skating will be October 30-November 16

"Your child isn't fully educated unless they are physically educated!"

 Non - Physical Education Days!

Image result for seven days without exercise makes one weak quote

Children need to be active at a moderate to vigorous level every day in order to get and/or stay healthy.  Your child only has Physical Education for 25 minutes 4 out of 5 days.  On non-Physical Education days, you become the Physical Education Teacher!

You should encourage your child to be physically active for at least 60 minutes every day of the week.  Ask your child what he/she is working on in Physical Education class.  Encourage him/her to practice those skills, activities and exercises on their own.

You can improve your fitness and health by doing the activities and exercises with your child.  You will also be setting a good example of being active for life.  If you don't know what else to do, at least take a walk with your child.  Don't worry what you do, just MOVE and have FUN together!
