I would like to welcome you and your child to another exciting school year at Griffin Memorial School. My name is Melissa Girzone and I am the Physical Education here at GMS.  The PE class schedule will be slightly different this year.  We will be having a 7-8 block rotation but we will also be having a "Flex" week each quarter.  This will be a five day rotating schedule.  This will allow the UA's to work collaboratively.  The PE class schedule will be different this year than in the past. Classes will be in rotations.  Each rotation will meet for 9 days straight.  After those 9 days, they will go to a different Unified art/special.  They will come back to PE 3-5 similar blocks throughout the year.  Classes are 50 minutes long for grades K-4.  The Physical Education program will focus on movement concepts, skill development, educational games, spatial awareness, fitness, health and wellness as well as sport lead up games. Our program will also promote team building and cooperative skills, fair play, respect, having fun and positive attitude toward achieving a healthy and physically active lifestyle.


Please be sure that your child wears sneakers to physical education. Students should wear sneakers that are tightly laced or strapped. Sneakers that are laced properly can help to reduce ankle injuries. Students should also bring a water botte to PE. Also, please send a doctors note if you wish him/her to be excused or restricted from any physical education activity due to illness or injury. Students are also asked to wear clothing that will not interfere with their movement.

I thank you in advance for helping your child to remember and be prepared on his/her physical education days. We have tons of fun and work our bodies very hard. It is so much more enjoyable for the children if they can move comfortably.
