Each student will be given a locker and combination lock. Students should bring a change of clothes for Physical Education class that will remain in their locker. They should be loose-fitting, comfortable and appropriate for school. We recommend taking clothes home each Friday in order to wash them after a week of hard work. Responsibility is key in remembering them after the weekend and being prepared for Monday's class. All students are required to have sneakers (no platforms) on in order to participate in class. Students will be graded on their preparedness and participation, as well as following directions.
