WELCOME to physical education (P.E.) at Trailside Elementary and Scenic Park Elementary! My name is Megan Wegscheider, and I am excited to be your child’s P.E. teacher this year. My classes will be discovering
movement, learning and practicing motor skills, and exploring many ideas about health, wellness, and physical fitness. Our lessons will be structured to develop P.E. literacy, include social interaction and team-building
opportunities, and promote excellent sportsmanship in a non-competitive environment.

Your child will participate in 90 minutes of P.E. each week. Trailside classes will be three, 30-minutes classes on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Scenic Park classes will be two, 45-minute classes on Mondays
and Tuesdays. YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR CHILD’S LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Please help her/him be prepared for class by wearing appropriate P.E. shoes and comfortable clothing that is not too
loose or baggy, nor too tight to restrict movement. P.E. shoes should be an athletic type that YOUR CHILD is able to tie or secure tightly (e.g., Velcro, zip-elastic). P.E. shoes should have non-marking soles, should be
kept dry and clean (free from rocks, mud, dirt, snow) and should be labeled with your child’s name and “PE”. NO HEELEYS, BALLERINA/TOE-SPINNING SKETCHERS, LOOSE-FITTING, NOR
LACELESS/NONFASTENING SHOES ARE ALLOWED FOR P.E. If you have questions regarding shoes or need assistance getting them, please contact me at Scenic Park, 742-1650, or Trailside, 742-5500, or via

Please help make your child’s physical education experience a successful one. There is a vital link between what your child learns at school and what is practiced and supported at home. If we work together, your
child’s development in P.E. will soar! Let’s make this a fantastic year of movement, fitness, wellness, and FUN!
