Welcome to Lindero Canyon Physical Education. Our department is pleased to have your child be part of our exciting Physical Education program.
This year in Physical Education, your child will be participating in exciting and perhaps different units. In other words, not just the traditional sports. The emphasis for 6th grade will be on “cooperative challenges”, 7th grade will focus on “individual challenges” and the 8th grade emphasis will be “working as a team to solve problems.” Students will be striving to reach their personal best in both group and individual activities. These units have been specially designed and we feel the program will motivate and challenge your child to be successful.
Physical Education standards have been developed to encompass more than just “playing.” The curriculum incorporates responsibility, leadership, sportsmanship, and knowledge of game and terminology and skill development.

In order to help your child succeed, the Physical Education department guidelines have been included in your student’s Binder Reminder on pages 19-21, our P.E. Department website and individual teacher web pages (See Links Above). This is to be read by both parent and student. This will help everyone involved better understand what is expected of students enrolled in physical education class. For example: “Pantsing” is a silly game students play outside of school. But in school “Pantsing” is a serious offense that is classified as sexual harassment and will be pursued as such. So please review the reminder binder and help us reiterate the importance of appropriate school and class behavior.
Communication between parent and teachers is a valuable tool towards the success of a student. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher at school if you have any questions or concerns. Email is the preferred method of contact and will ensure the quickest response. In the links at the bottom of this page, there is a PDF download for parent and student signatures
. ALL STUDENTS ARE TO RETURN THE SIGNED LAST PAGE. Also, there is a medical information document
. Please use this form to let your teacher know of any medical or physical limitations.
The PE Department requires written medical note and not an email or telephone call.
