Add a fitness goal to your busy lives. I ask the children to get on the floor when they watch TV and work on their stretching! Perhaps a push up goal you can do with them. Exercise is a great habit to get into. Ask your children how to do a proper plank, push-up, curl up, or squat. Let them show you what they learned. Try it with them. Make it a contest. See if you can add one more everyday. If kids see you exercising as a part of your routine, they are more likely to make it part of their lives too. Family exercise! It's fun to be fit!

Dear Parents/Guardians of School No. 2:
Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year and to our physical education program. It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you as the physical education teacher of School 2. My name is Denise Beffre and I am proud to be a part of the Fort Lee district for the last 14 years, 12 at the high school and now my third year with the wonderful staff at School 2. I am very excited to be working with your children again this year.
It is my mission as a physical educator to engage all the students with interesting cooperative games, fitness challenges and knowledge and skills for various sports. Throughout the year, we will teach good sportsmanship and the importance of integrity while learning about lifetime fitness. I am looking forward to having a strong partnership with you for the overall success in your child’s education at our school.
The dress code for physical education is comfortable athletic clothes (no dresses, skirts and preferably no jeans ) and athletic sneakers designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The traditional lace up athletic sneaker provides the best support for children, however we will accept Velcro for younger students or until they know how to tie the laces. We want to ensure your child’s safety, so please be advised that heels, boots, sandals, high platform sneakers, crocs, or slip on shoes are not permitted, as they promote instability and can lead to injury. Students who may be wearing these types of footwear will not be able to participate in Physical activity that day. This will impact the grade so please wear or pack those sneakers!
As the school year begins, I kindly ask you to please remind your child what day he/she has PE and dress properly for class. If your child cannot participate for an illness or injury please send a note. If it is multiple days, please send a doctor's note.
The 4 main rules are:
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions and concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any kind of pressing issue you MUST call the main office and speak to someone personally.
For the rest of the year, please check the fusion pages to find out what’s happening in P.E. Thank you for your time and support.
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. ~Plato
