Physical Education significantly contributes to students’ well-being; therefore, it is an instructional priority and an integral part of our students’ education experience. Physical Education contributes to good health, develops motor skills, improves students’ self-confidence, and provides opportunities for increased levels of physical fitness that are associated with high academic achievement.

PE Uniform

May be purchased from the school ASB

Proper fitting clothing appropriate for exercise at school

Athletic shorts and full length plain gray T-shirt (no tank-tops or cut sleeves)

Athletic shoes (no sandals, flip flops, dress shoes, cleats or boots)

No headgear (hats, stocking caps, headbands or bandanas)

For cold weather only, students may wear sweatpants and/or a sweatshirt

Students are not allowed to share uniforms with other students. Shared clothing will be confiscated.


Lockers are issued to students with a lock and proper PE uniform. Students may not claim their own locker, share or change lockers without teacher permission. Students are responsible for their own belongings. All items should be locked up, worn or watched at all times.

Locker Room Rules

Dress quickly, go directly to roll call numbers and be seated

No loud noises, running or horseplay

No food or drink

No aerosol sprays or glass items

No phones, I-pads or other electronic devices without teacher permission


All students must suit up for PE even if they bring a note excusing them from activity.  A parent may excuse a student for 1-2 days, beyond that; a doctor’s note is required.  The note should include a brief explanation of the problem and a telephone number.  A doctor’s note must be taken to the school nurse before PE class.


Grades are based on performance of the California Physical Education Standards with an emphasis on effort, character and responsibility. Participation is also important in PE. Students who are absent or unable to participate for any reason should request a make-up assignment.
