Physical Education Update by Mrs. Friesen 

October 2020

The snow and cooler temperatures have finally arrived and it is always joyful to watch children excited to play in the fresh snow. This year CJP Phys. Ed. classes are outside whenever possible. This means embracing our Calgarian weather and being active outdoors. Your child will be best prepared for outdoor PE when they are properly dressed for the weather. This might mean that your child brings lots of layers and wears more during their morning PE class than they do their afternoon recess or learning opportunity for example. Sending your child with an extra pair of socks and/or mittens is also recommended for when they get wet. Please, please, please remember to label all articles of clothing that they can remove (jackets, mittens, hats, sweaters, footwear) with their names. This helps the item get returned to your child if forgotten outside or it drops out of their hands or bag in school. While Rooms 8, 9, 12, 19, 20, 21, 24 and 25 are the classes taking PE with Mrs. Friesen this term, all students have been invited to the CJP PE Google Classrooms for their division (Div 1 = Grades 1, 2, 3 and Div 2 = 4, 5, 6). Please have your child check out Google Classroom for updates.
