I hope everyone has a happy, safe and healthy Halloween! Just want to mention that we will not be marking students as un-prepared on Tuesday, October 31st! Enjoy the day and please make sure to remind your children to be safe!
Starting this week (10/23), unprepared and behavior letters will be sent home for parents to sign. In an effort to keep the line of communication open, this is a chance for me to give updates to you on how your children are performing in phys ed. Many of you will not be receiving a letter. I do teach approximately 1200 students and this week I will be sending out 15 behavior letters and 5 unprepared letters. If you receive a behavior letter please sign it and have your child return it to me. I do keep a log as to who I send letters home to so please get them back to me in a timely manner. At the bottom of the letter you will have the opportunity to write your phone number and request that I give you a call to discuss the matter further. If a second letter needs to be sent home, you will be receiving a phone call from me. The unprepared slips get sent home to students that have 2 unprepared's in the current marking period. This has a tremendous impact on your child's grade especially because we only have physical education once per week. Students are required to wear sneakers on days of gym no matter what the weather. Examples of exceptions include but are not limited to picture day. As always, thank you everyone for your continued support. It takes a village and please know that I am always here to answer any questions you may have. Thank you and hopefully I will see you soon!
Hello parents I hope this message finds you well. Our school year is well underway and we are already into the middle of October. As many of you are aware, this week is picture week at PS 229. There have been many concerns with the students regarding being un-prepared for gym classes. This week because of pictures, students will not be marked as unprepared for gym classes. Our lesson is specifically geared towards students not being able to move around because of the uncomfortable clothing they are wearing to physical education class. We will be focusing on lifetime activities which are activities that you can play no matter your age or athletic ability. The two that we are focusing on this week are Bocce Ball and Cup-stacking. Thank you everyone for you continued support and please check back soon for the next update!
