3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Information
Intramurals for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys and girls will be held after school and are offered to supplement the Physical Education program. Participation is optional and FREE. Intramurals rules and expectations are the same as in P.E. class. Students must wear appropriate athletic style shoes to participate. Students must turn in a permission slip (bottom portion only) signed by their parent/guardian.
Students should enter the gym through the doors by the main office, unless they are coming from the Patriots Club (B/A) program. Patriots Club students must check in with Mr. Scott before heading down to the gym. All students must sign in before participating in any Intramurals activity. Parents and siblings are always welcome to stay and watch.
Intramurals will begin the week of September 23, 2019 and will end the week of April 13, 2020. 3rd grade students will meet on Monday afternoons, every other week, from 2:45-3:30 pm in the gym. Activities include large group games, jump rope, relay races, and hula hoops.
4th and 5th grade boys and girls will meet on Friday afternoons, every other week, from 2:45-3:30 pm. Activities include indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, and floor hockey games. Students will practice the skills needed for each activity during P.E. class. I will assist the students in making up teams. A schedule will be sent home so that you and your child know which of the scheduled games your child will be playing. The same format will be followed when we change activities. Games are approximately 12-15 minutes long.
Students will be dismissed from the gym at approximately 3:30 pm. Students who are walking home or getting a ride home, will exit out the back door by the back parking lot. Only students whose parents are in the gym, can exit out the front of the school. For safety and security reasons, students must remain in the gym until they are dismissed at 3:30 pm.
