Long Middle School

Physical Education & Health

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to a new year with Long Middle School’s Physical Education Department. The 2017-2018 school year brings us into the new millennium with new Physical Education frameworks, standards and assessments.
Our program seeks to establish opportunities for all students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to live a physically active lifestyle and maintain health-related fitness. Good nutrition and physical fitness are imperative to peak academic performance for students and for long term health.

Students will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of movement experiences and fitness activities. Your help will be needed to encourage your child to work hard on fitness activities and also live an active and healthy lifestyle outside of class. Each week you will be asked to verify with a signature that your child is being active and keeping a fitness log that meets the criteria listed on the handout. We encourage you to participate with your child while performing these outside of class activities.

Many important documents were given to your child during their first day of class to share with you. These included:
1. Class Syllabus which includes rules, standards and policy procedures.
2. Health statement that should include any physical limitations, as well as, medications taken by your child.
3. Order form for your child’s P.E. uniform

Please review these important papers with your child and sign the appropriate lines allowed indicating your understanding, as well as, your child’s understanding of these procedures. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
