LMS Physical Education Program
Fall Update 2014

Welcome back!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Summer and are gearing up for another great school year.  While the weather is still warm, students at all levels will be running and playing many games outside.  We will work on spatial awareness, chasing and fleeing,  hand-eye coordination, cooperation and teamwork.

Please be sure to check your child's Specials schedule to find out when they have PE.
 
It is especially important during this time of year that students bring appropriate footwear.   Sneakers, or other closed toe, rubber soled shoes help keep children safe and allow for maximum participation.  Crocs, flip-flops, sandals, and boots (in the Winter) are not ideal and are generally unsafe for running.  Please try to send your young athletes to school with appropriate footwear on PE days.
  
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
