    Dear Parents,


    We are looking forward to providing your child with an exciting and rewarding physical education program. The P. E. classes will prove to be an integral phase in their physical and social development. We take pride in our program and are committed to giving the students the best instruction possible.


    The aim of the physical education program at Independence Magnet School is to develop and improve students’ personal fitness and motor skills by providing developmentally appropriate activities through purposeful, creative and enjoyable instruction. By incorporating challenging yet achievable tasks, the students will attain positive attitudes about physical activity and movement.  


    Your child’s locomotor movement, manipulative skills, personal behavior, and fitness level will be monitored and assessed throughout the school year. Every child is expected to participate to the best of their ability each day they attend class. There are days however, when illness or injury may inhibit your child’s ability to participate. If so, please send a note with your child, with a brief description regarding the nature of the restriction.  If the condition restricts activity for more than 5 consecutive days, a doctor’s note will be required.


    We are concerned about your child’s safety and for that reason; we ask that they wear athletic or running type shoes. Shoes with heals, boots or sandals make it difficult for children to participate safely. We strongly encourage students to wear socks with their shoes and girls that choose to wear dresses or skirts should wear shorts underneath their clothing.


    If your child has any ongoing health concerns or restrictions that we need to be aware of, please send a detailed note with instructions for their class participation limitations.


    The students will attend Physical Education 5 days a week (Mon to Fri). Activities will be in the gym, playground, or my classroom. The classroom teachers will have schedules posted in their classrooms.  A master schedule will also be posted outside the gym, my classroom door, and on my website.


    The information on this letter will be posted on the P. E Web Page for you to view anytime.  Thank you for your support, and we look forward to working with your child.


    Thank You,

    Stacey Henry
