Gust Elementary

Physical Education

We are keeping busy in PE! We will continue our invasion games units for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades and will continue working on fleeing and spatial-awareness with our kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders.

As the weather changes, we know that many students will be wearing boots to school. Please be sure to bring tennis shoes to change into so that you can participate in PE!

Your third grade son or daughter will expand on the traditional physical education experience by participating in swimming lessons.  The lessons will take place at the Southwest Denver Y.M.C.A. Lessons are taught by certified instructors and there is a lifeguard on duty.  Last year we had a minimum of five adults present for each lesson. The Y.M.C.A. will provide free transportation. We are scheduled to leave Gust @ 10:15.  You, the parent, must sign the permission form for your child to ride the bus.

What does your child need to bring?  The day of the swimming lesson, your child should arrive to school with a swimming suit, towel and a plastic bag to put the wet suit and towel after the lesson.  A winter hat is also recommended for afterwards.

A note will be sent home to inform you of the first day of swimming.
