Newton-Lee Physical Education
Physical Education during the Pandemic
Now more than ever, students need to feel connected and need to be active. with screen time as a concern, we will strive to provide engaging lessons in the synchronous and ansynchronous formats. As of 9/8/20, classes meet "live" every other week for 45 minutes while completing asynchronous assignments using resources housed in schoology.
Normal In School P.E. Program
Grades 1 thru 5 students will have P.E. three times a week while Kindergarten meets twice weekly. Our primary objective is to equip students with a variety of skills, strategies and activities that keep them moving throughout their lifetimes!
It is important for students to wear tennis shoes for PE in order for safe participation in all activities. Students should also remember to wear comfortable clothing on the days that they have PE scheduled. Depending on the specific activity, on a given day, students who do not wear the appropriate footwear may not be allowed to participate in class.
If a student must be temporarily excused due to illness or injury, parents please send a note to the PE teacher. If the illness or injury persists longer than one week, please send a note from the doctor (Physician Activity Checklist).
