  • What are we doing in gym today?

    We encourage 100% participation and good sportsmanship at Hickory Elementary.  Our students participate in a wide variety of activities and games.  Our physical education program emphasizes learning basic movement skills, enjoyment in playing together, and finding success in physical activities.  All children are challenged to strive for their personal best.  We hope that positive experiences in elementary PE set the stage for a healthy lifestyle for our children.

    Remember Safe Shoes! 
    Gym shoes need to be worn to school on your child's regular PE day.  Safe shoes for gym need to be full, *athletic shoes that fit securely and stay on their feet during activities.  If students forget to wear gym shoes, they may be asked to sit out rather than participating in PE activities with their classmates. We strive for 100% participation - please help us achieve this goal! 
    I work on learning to tie during PE class with all Kindergarten classes.
    Please encourage them to practice - even if they don't have tie shoes @ this time.
