Please help your Broadway student remember to wear tennis shoes on their P.E. days.82215_32735_0.png





Here are some friendly reminders to know, from the C.I.S.D. Elementary/Intermediate Student Handbook, regarding your child’s Physical Education class.  (You can access the handbook online at the C.I.S.D. Website under C.I.S.D. Policy)


Student Dress/Grooming, page 12
Students are involved in P.E. classes. Proper shoes make this a good experience for a child. Flip flops may not be worn during P.E. classes. Girls may wish to wear shorts under their dresses.

Excused from P.E. Participation, page 5
Physical education is an important part of a child’s educational experience and is required by state law. A written excuse is required in the event a child needs to be excused from participation in physical education. If he or she cannot participate for a period of more than five days, a doctor’s statement should be presented to the school. A note from the physician, including releasing the student to return to regular participation in physical education, will also be requested.

Physical Fitness Assessment, page 15
Annually the District will conduct a physical fitness assessment of students in grades 3-12.

Kindergartens are very anxious about wearing their tie up tennis shoes to class.  They are showing me how well they are working on tying their shoelaces in class each day!  Makes me proud too!  Here is a little help I found out there:

Top 6 Tips for Teaching Kids to Tie their Shoes
From Michelle Kouzmine,
Your Guide to Kids' Fashion.
Though most kids' shoes now feature Velcro closures, learning to tie ones own shoes is still considered to be milestone that children should master by 5 or 6 years of age. But, teaching a child to tie his own shoes can be frustrating; kids can lose interest quickly if they feel the task is too difficult, or they may seem to "get it" one day only to completely forget the next.
Have no fear, I've got a few tricks up my sleeves that can make teaching a kid to tie his own shoes a bit easier. All kids learn differently, so try a few of these methods and see what works best for your child.
1. Bunny Ears  
Probably the most common method for teaching kids to tie their own shoes is the "Bunny Ears" method.
Tell the child that he needs to make his shoe laces into "bunny ears."
First, he needs to secure a knot for the bunny's head. Take the laces and cross them over to make an "X". Then, pull one ear through the bottom of the "X" and pull tight.  Say, "Now we need to give bunny some ears." Loop the laces into "bunny ears".
Tell the child that now we need to "make the bunny ears tight so they don't fall off". Then make another "X" using the "bunny ears", slide one "ear" under the "X" and pull tightly.
2. Bi-Colored Laces
This is a great tip that can really make learning to tie much easier. Take two laces in two different colors and cut them down the middle. Then sew them together to make two bi-colored laces. Lace a pair of old shoes with these funny shoes strings. Using bi-colored laces can really help a kid who has trouble remembering his right from his left. You can use any learning-to-tie method in combination with your bi-colored laces.
3. Cardboard Cut-Out Shoe
Take a cardboard box and cut out an over-sized shoe shape. Have your kid decorate the shoe in any way he wishes. Using a pen, poke holes for laces. Use the bi-colored lace tip above, but instead of cutting the original laces in two, use two entire laces sewn together to create one long, bi-colored shoe string. Lace the shoe and use any teaching method, using this cut-out. Some kids find it easier and more interesting to practice on an over-sized model.
4. The Squirrel and the Tree
This is a fun method that utilizes a kid friendly story and movements that help kids understand and remember the basic steps to shoe tying.  Tell the child to create "tree roots" by making a starter knot.
Make a tree with a long thin loop; hold the loop in the child's right hand.
With his left hand, take hold of the lace and tell him that a squirrel runs around the tree and jumps into the hole under the tree and comes out the other side (he'll need to switch hands at this point which can be difficult for some kids).
Many parents prefer this trick because it teaches the kid to tie shoes with the single loop method.
5. Loop It and Swoop It
This is a less childish, but still memorable way of teaching a child to tie in the traditional single loop method. Teach your child to tie his shoes using the standard tying method, but as you go through the motions say, "loop it, swoop it, pull." Do this over and over while repeating the same three, simple instructions until your child is able to tie his shoes on his own. Encourage him to say "loop it, swoop it, pull" each time he attempts tying his shoes until it becomes second nature.
6. Learning to Tie Toys and Books
