Physical Education

October 24, 2017

Dear Parents, 
 
We are excited that students have the opportunity to have high-quality, standards-based Physical Education led by our teachers, Mr. Niccolich and Ms. Borges. Students are able to receive additional gym periods toward meeting the New York State requirements. This fitness-based program teaches our students to be physically active, work as a team, and set fitness goals that can last a lifetime.

We are pleased to announce that our school will be offering families the opportunity to purchase physical education sportswear with our school’s PE logo. The school has set up an online store, www.smoothusa.com/ps174 where families can purchase t-shirts, shorts and gym bags. The purchase of these items is optional. If you choose not to order PE sportswear at this time, please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes for the days s/he has P.E. class. Athletic clothing, such as t-shirts, sweatpants/shorts, leggings, yoga pants are examples of clothes that are acceptable to wear during P.E. Thank you for helping support your child in dressing appropriately for P.E. In addition all students must wear comfortable athletic shoes (sneakers) that provide foot and/or ankle support. Boots/sandals/flip flops are not appropriate and student will be asked to do an alternative activity for the period.
  
At all grade levels we emphasize sportsmanship, team spirit, accepting personal responsibility, setting and meeting personal goals for fitness, collaboration and cooperation among all students.  

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting our Parent Coordinator, Laura Hui at LHui2@schools.nyc.gov.

Best, 
Principal K. Kelly
