Malletts Bay School
Dear MBS Osprey families,
First, I would like to say welcome to Malletts Bay School. My name is Elizabeth Eastman. I will be your child’s physical education teacher. I am super excited to have your child in my class this year! In this letter you will find information on how often your child will have PE, social media, how to be ready for outdoor PE and safe footwear.
I am so excited to say that your child will be having PE twice a week. Each class will be 45 minutes. On my blog you will be able to see what days of the week your child will have PE. Click on the tab that says class schedule. My blog and Instagram account (pe_shark) will be where I will be posting pictures and videos of students participating in PE.
This year I will continue to teach outside as much as possible. Knowing that we will be outside for most of the year I am asking that your child come prepared for the weather. Being prepared means having an extra pair of socks, a second set of sneakers (if you can), extra shorts or pants in case they get wet and a coat for the cooler temperatures. Please make sure to write your child’s name on any outdoor apparel and water bottle. I highly recommend your child come to PE with a water bottle. I want to make sure your child can stay hydrated and safe.
On the first day of PE I will be talking to your child about safe footwear. Safe footwear is a shoe that covers their entire foot, is ankle high or lower, might lace up or Velcro, could slide on but won’t slide off easily, doesn’t have thick heels or wheels and no crocs. Having safe footwear will keep your child and others safe. If you have any questions about footwear please send me an email.
To help reduce the spread of germs I will ask students to try and wash their hands before and after PE class. If that is not an option hand sanitizer will be available for them to use.
We can’t have volunteers yet. Fingers crossed we will be able to have volunteers at some point this year. I will let you know through my blog and Instagram when that could be an option for PE. I always enjoy having adults join the fun and help out.
Again, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to email me at Elizabeth.Eastman@colchestersd.org. I am here for you and your child. Let’s have a fun year.
