Shoes for P.E.

The P.E. teacher asked me to post this picture of shoes that she identified as NOT appropriate for her P.E. activities.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, days that we have P.E., she asks that you send your child to school in shoes that have good support and good traction and provide the support and protection needed for active play on the asphalt playground.

Thank you!

Thant was a very good idea! I have always had this problem. I have seen a lot of kids get hurt or miss out on great activites because we care enough not to see them get hurt.

Hi, Barbara--

We all want everyone to be safe. It's easy to forget how the world looks to a PE teacher.

Yes, I thought you might. No worries, but if you can remember, that would make Mrs. C happy.

Shelby, please do!
