Here at Southwestern Elementary School, we provide a safe and inviting environment for all students. PE skills are taught for all learning abilities. During the school year, our Physical Education program offers many different activities including fitness awareness, pool skills, personal safety, nutrition and exercise based lessons. We also emphasize character development - proper manners, being a good friend and partner, good sportsmanship, and respecting the skills and attributes of all students, faculty, and staff.

    It is so exciting to be back in school. And even more exciting to see all of YOU! Despite of all of the new rules and procedures that we must follow, it is just GREAT to be back. We will do our best to keep everyone safe and healthy, and it will all begin with the great NEW games that we have planned for you. All of our new games, and even some old favorites, emphasize social distancing, no equipment use, and, at times, mandatory mask wearing. Having much smaller PE classes will also be a new change. Finally, we need all students who use TEAMS to log in and check out all of the posts, materials, videos, assignments, and chats. This is where we will keep in touch with you on the days that you're not in school. Trust me, you don't want to miss Mr. Moran's Virtual Gym powerpoints, Mr. Swan-Leuze's awesome workouts, and Mr. Arnold's informative health lessons.
    POOL - Swimmers in grades 3-5 need to bring a swim suit (girls must have a one piece) and towel. Goggles are optional, but recommended. It is also optional for your child to wear a pair of flip flops in the locker room and pool deck.
    REMINDERS - Students must wear sneakers in gym class. Wearing sandles, flip flops, dress shoes, crocs, and boots is not allowed. This is for the safety of your child.
    Also, as we head into Fall we will continue to take our PE classes outside. Please make sure your child(ren) have a jacket/sweatshirt to wear on gym days. Thank you!
