 Physical Education
Laura Shewey, P.E. Teacher

Students at PGES are required to participate in physical education class once a week for 45 minutes.  Students are encouraged to find ways to be physically active outside of the gymnasium through extracurricular activities. 

Students will participate in a variety of games and activities with a fitness concentration.  The sports that are covered each year will vary.  Students will participate in skill sessions and lead-up games designed to spark interest in participation outside of physical education class and to build life long fitness.

Students will not be allowed to participate in P.E. class if the are not wearing the appropriate footwear.  Tennis shoes are best!  Students who are wearing flip flops, dress shoes, clogs, boots, or open toed footwear will be required to complete an alternative activity during class time that is P.E. related.  Students who wear skirts or dresses to school may want to bring a pair of shorts to wear while participating in P.E. class as well!
