Dawn D. Valero
I would like to welcome all students to Physical Education. To motivate children throughout the year, the Physical Education Department attempts to incorporate activities that the children enjoy doing while still getting a good workout. My personal motto is, "If you had fun you won!"
Children are also exposed to a variety of learning opportunities brought in from outside settings; such as Gymnastics, Tae Kwon Do, and Jump Rope for Heart. In addition to learning about physical activity, the children are also educated on their nutrition and health needs. We hope that every student at Lake Ridge Elementary School will constantly work towards improving their physical activity and strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle even after elementary school and for the rest of their lives!
Classes are off to a Great start! Please know that this year all classes will be on a 4 day rotation, meaning I will see your children every 4 days. This results in seeing your kids on a different day every week. Please make sure the children come prepared to participate with the correct clothing but most importantly the correct shoes. Please have them wear "sneakers" or rubber soled, closed toe shoes. Children will not be allowed to participate if they are wearing incorrect shoes. Some examples of improper shoes are sandles, boots, crocs, flip-flops,and dress shoes. If your child misses Physical Education five times in a grading. period due to improper footwear he/she will receive a grade of S- due to the fact that they will not participate due to safety reasons. Please be aware of their schedule so that all children come prepared.
