What's Happening in P.E.


Looking forward to a GREAT school year!!
I am SUPER excited about the 2021-2022 school year.  
My goal is to encourage kids to be active daily and make
healthy eating choices.
I will instill the appreciation of sports and teach good sportsmanship!!  
I am looking forward to an AHmazing year in the gym!!!  
Come and play with us anytime!!!

Things to know about Woodridge PE!!!!

At Woodridge, the kids in Grades 3, 4, and 5 do NOT come to PE with their class but in a
SPECIALS LETTER...A,B,C,D,E,F,G,or H.
Each letter is mixed with kids from each class on the grade level.  
This allows students to meet and interact with others from their grade level.
Your child should know their letter and refer to the SPECIALS ROTATION to know what class they will
attend daily during SPECIALS!!!
Monday is always DAY 1, Tuesday DAY 2, Wednesday DAY 3, Thursday DAY 4.  Fridays rotate.  
Sounds confusing, but the kids and teachers get it...smile!!!!
1st and 2nd Grades classes will come by homeroom class this year.
We are extremely active and ALWAYS moving in PE.
Remember, it is HOT so dress appropriately on PE days...tennis shoes are a MUST!!
Please come and play with us anytime!!!!



If you are interested in DONATING supplies to the gym, the following is our
WISH LIST:
*Laundry Baskets for storing equipment 
*Disinfecting Wipes
*Itunes Cards to download music
*Tennis Shoes that your child has outgrown BUT still in good shape. 
We plan to have a "Tennis Shoe Tub" in each gym for those kiddos that forget to wear their tennis shoes can borrow for the day to play safely.
*Small Dixie Cups for water.  Because of COVID, kids can not use the fountain spouts.
 
ANYTHING is greatly appreciated!!!!


The following are the PE Expectations that we will follow and enforce in the gyms this year.  
PLEASE help your child to be successful with these expectations!!!
