4. Welcome back everyone!

We're back for another year and we're looking forward at building onto what the students acheived last year. We've had a couple of changes this year. Ms. Wagner is now teaching grade one. We'll miss her in the gym but we're really glad to have her still at our school. We are very fortunate to have last year's physical education mentor, Mrs. MacDougall as our Physical Education specialist at Barkers Point. She will bring a lot to our program at Barkers Point.

I intend on keeping this site up to date and would love to hear some feedback from you on how to make it better. Please email me if you have some suggestions.

A few suggestions to begin the year:
  1. All students must have indoor sneakers for use in the gymnasium. These shoes must be non-marking. Have your child, scuff the shoe on the tiled floor to see if it leaves a mark or not. Also, shoes must be properly tied. Within the first month, I intend on having some pictures of properly tied shoes. Today's students love wearing untied shoes but it's very unsafe and will likely cause problems with their feet when they get older.
  2. Proper gym clothes - It was great to see students in grade one changing last year. We didn't enforce that the students change but we did want them to at least wear their gym clothes to school on the days that they have Physical Education. The older grades are expected to change as their bodies produce more sweat and with that, more of a stink. They need to change out of their workout clothes and back into their clothes that they wore to school. SHORTS, TRACK PANTS, SWEAT PANTS, T-SHIRTS OR SWEAT SHIRTS ON COLDER DAYS.

We're looking forward to a great year! Please email me at tayne.moore@nbed.nb.ca if you have any questions.
