PHYSICAL EDUCATION

TIME TO GET IN SHAPE

 

The focus for each Hopewell student is to be fit for life. Important foundations that will be built on through each grading period will be developing healthy eating habits, increasing exercise activity time, getting enough rest, and increasing play in a variety of ways. The anchor for each child is the involvement of parents in their child's studies and in making wellness habits that will last a lifetime. 

EXPECTATIONS:

  • STUDENTS WILL PARTICIPATE EACH DAY, TRYING NEW ACTIVITIES, PERFORMING SKILLS, AND IMPROVING FITNESS LEVELS.
  • STUDENTS WILL RESPECT THEMSELVES, CLASSMATES, SCHOOL PROPERTY, AND THE TEACHER AT ALL TIMES.
  • STUDENTS, WITH THE HELP OF THEIR PARENTS, NEED TO FOLLOW SCHOOL RULES OF DRESSING APPROPRIATELY FOR CLASS WITH TENNIS SHOES AND CLOTHES THAT FIT.
  • THE GOAL OF EACH FAMILY IS TO ENGAGE IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TOGETHER AT LEAST 30 MINUTES DAILY AT HOME. ALSO, EACH STUDENT WILL LEARN NUTRITIONAL GUIDELINES FOR SNACKING AND MEALTIME THAT NEEDS TO BE ENRICHED AT HOME.
