Welcome to Mr. Canale's Physical Education Website!
Our goal in physical education is for everyone to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will hopefully continue throughout their lives.
Students will be encouraged to have fun and enjoy PE. They will also be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in a wide variety of activities. At the elementary level, certain skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue competitive sports as well as lifetime sports.
Your child will have PE once a week and sneakers are required. Appropriate shoes must have a non marking rubber sole and cover the entire foot. If sandals, open back shoes, high heel shoes or leather soled boots are worn to school, the student must bring appropriate shoes for PE. Cleats and Roller shoes are not allowed in PE class. Shoelaces must be laced snugly and tied on top of the shoe. If your child does not have appropriate shoes they will not be allowed to participate that day.
*****If your child has any physical disabilities, please let us know. Problems such as chronic asthma, allergies, heart problems, diabetes, etc. need to be documented and kept in our files in the PE office. Prior knowledge will help us to monitor your child closely and correct or alleviate any issues that may arise. Your childs’ safety is my number one priority during physical education.
My conference time is on Tuesdays between 230-330 in the gymnasium. Please feel free to contact me during this time. You may also leave me a message through the website www.MrCanale.Weebly.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I am looking forward to another fabulous and fun year here at PS 229!
