To accomplish our goals and for your child to participate in Physical Education class, TENNIS SHOES ARE REQUIRED. Proper shoes are essential for the safety of your child and it is very important for him/her to wear tennis shoes on their PE days. If your child is without the proper shoes, he/she will not be allowed to participate, which will have an affect on his/her PE grade.
