Physical Education at PS206Q

Student success depends on a blend of academic skills, good health, and physical and mental fitness. A recent report indicates that school-based physical activity may help improve students’ grades and test scores and positively affect other factors that influence academic achievement.

Fitness and health activities in school encourage students to:

- Be physically active.
- Learn to make healthy decisions and develop a healthy lifestyle.
- Experience traditional and non-traditional health-related fitness activities.

***Please have your child wear sneakers and loose fitting clothes on PE day.
T- shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants sold at PS206 are perfect to wear on PE day.
Pants should not be tight fitting and should be able to stay at the waist.
On cold days your child should wear a t-shirt under a sweater or sweatshirt. The outer shirt can be taken off during the PE class. This will prevent your child from becoming overheated when participating in physical activities.

***Students must wear sneakers (no wedge sneakers are permitted) to participate in activities on the gym floor. Please send sneakers to school if your child wears boots to school on a PE day. Coming three times to PE unprepared will result in a lowering of the grade.

***I strongly recommend students bring a water bottle to PE class. Please bring a bottle with a sport cap. This prevents large spills which cause delay in instructional time. Bottles with screw off tops cannot be opened in the gym.

Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

Grades 3 and 4 will visiting the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center during the months of April and May. The cost is $10 per student. Parents are invited to come at no cost.

The trip will start with a video showing the “secrets” of the tennis stadium. Then, we will tour the center grounds with our professional guide Marty. Next, students will participate in tennis activities directed by a group of tennis pros on indoor courts. Remember to wear athletic clothing and sneakers. It is great fun!

Finally, lunch is eaten in the center lunchroom and we head back to 206. Last year Ms. Stoll’s student, Jacob Mushyakov, wrote about the trip and won two free weeks at the tennis summer camp. Below is Jacob’s winning writing and a picture of him at the camp.

What is Move-to-Improve? MTI is a physical activity program based in the classroom, designed by the Department of the City of New York of Education (DOE) and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene New York City (DOHMH) to increase physical activity among students, K-5, in elementary school. MTI helps primary school teachers incorporate short and structured activities in their daily practices. These activities comprise MTI academic grade level concepts and physical activity in an educational lesson in 10 minutes and aligned with the Standards of Learning of Physical Education of the State of New York.
