1. Tennis shoes are required in order for any student to participate.
2. Shorts are required under skirts if students are involved in activities that require running or jumping.
This school year we have strategically planned for Physical Education to be designed for the best outcome for our students who will be physically here at Belleview Middle School. They will have the opportunity to learn and enjoy health and PE in a new and exciting way while staying within the safety guidelines.
Microsoft Teams will also be used as a part of our learning experience for students. They will actively participate physically while here on the Belleview Campus and also utilizing the Microsoft Teams platform to help prepare them for possible Distance Learning as well.
ONLINE DISTANCE LEARNING
For our Distance Learning students, we will only use the Microsoft Teams educational platform for our 2020-2021 PE Course. All correspondence, communication, and assignments will be delivered through this method. Students will become accustomed to and will be able to navigate as they get used to this new way of learning. If for some reason all students are required to do Online Distance learning, Microsoft Teams will be our ONLY platform used for all aspects of PE.
I'm excited to be a part of your child's educational advancement in their growth and development and look forward to a fun and exciting year.
