• Welcome to Pineview!

    Welcome from Physical Education

     

     

     

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.  I look forward to working with the students as we prepare for a year of learning in Physical Education.  Physical Education contributes to the whole child: physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially.  Children can gain knowledge of movement skills and develop a positive attitude toward physical activity throughout their lives.  Children can also work and socialize with others in a cooperative manner and with caring and responsible attitudes.

     

    The content of this program is comprehensive, balanced and progressive from kindergarten to fifth grades.  Each child is expected to wear comfortable clothing and shoes that cover their toes and heels. They attend Physical Education 2 days each week.  For your students, those 2 days are: Monday,  Tuesday,     Wednesday,     Thursday,    Friday.  Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately and ready to participate on those days.

     

    Students are expected to be attentive and follow directions from the teacher and to participate in Physical Education to the best of their ability .  This positive behavior will make sure that the student is ready & available to obtain the knowledge that is needed to execute all aspects that are a part of each skill being taught. Please remind your student(s) to be on their best behavior at all times.  If there is a reason why the child can not participate, please provide a letter explaining their limitations.  If a child needs to be excused due to an injury or medical condition, a medical excuse needs to be given in writing from the treating physician.  After a student has recovered from an illness or broken limb, please provide a written release from the physician or from yourself.

     

    For an overview of standards and expectancies in Physical Education, you can view them under Florida Sunshine Standards through the Department of Education Website.
