Fitness Gram, the state-mandated fitness test, will be given to all students in every grade each semester. The results of these tests are reported to the state.
Each student will need to purchase a PE uniform from ($20). Uniforms can be purchased through our online store or in person from Coach Schreiber. The Online Store can be accessed on the Forbes Website>Parents>Online Payments. The uniform consists of a gray Falcon PE shirt and a pair of black dri-fit shorts. In addition, your daughter will need tennis shoes and socks each day.
Each student needs to remove all jewelry for class (including earrings) and put long hair in a ponytail. If your daughter has had her ears recently pierced and cannot remove them, you will need to provide tape or band-aids to cover her ears during PE.
I will issue each student a locker and lock to use while in class. Encourage your daughter to use the locker to secure her things. The Coaching Staff and school are not responsible for items not locked up. The cost for lost locks is $5.00.
If your daughter is not feeling well and you do not want her to participate in PE, please send a note. A parental note will excuse a student for up to 3 consecutive days, after that, a doctor’s note will be needed. Students should continue to dress out even if they have a note from a parent. Excuse notes from a doctor will be honored as indicated in the note.
I am looking forward to a great year with your daughter. Please call me if you have any concerns or questions.
