Shoes are the most important item for P.E. Students need supportive, secure foot wear for running, jumping and fast movements. Shoes must have laces or velcro closures to ensure that they will stay on. Backless, slip-ons, flats, hard soled Mary Jane’s or boots are not appropriate for P.E. class. Converse Chucks or Tom”s do not provide enough support or have the proper sole for P.E. activity.
Students may bring shoes for P.E., especially during our wet weather when many wear boots. They can change before and after class.
If a student does not have appropriate shoes for P.E., they will not participate in locomotor activities. This is for safety reasons and protecting our gym floors.
Please refer to the P.E. schedule for the days your child has P.E.
Grades K – 5
Students wear their school uniform to P.E. Girls need to wear shorts under jumpers or skirts.
Sweaters and sweatshirts should be labeled with students name. As we warm up students are encouraged to remove their sweaters/sweatshirts. Athletic Shoes are required for P.E. Please refer to the P.E. schedule to ensure students have appropriate athletic shoes for their P.E. days. If students do not wear athletic shoes for P.E., they will be asked to sit out class to ensure their safety.
Grades 6 – 8
Middle School students dress down for P.E.
Middle Schoolers only are allowed to wear P.E. Uniforms (see below) to school on Friday for the entire day (unless it is a Mass Day).
Students can wear black, navy or grey athletic warm-ups, sweats or shorts (minimum of 5″ shorts) and white, grey, navy or black short sleeved t-shirts (small logos only – think size of your palm for logo on front and back).
