News from PE Teachers
Hello! A new school year is upon us and we would like to take this time to introduce you to the physical education program your child will be participating in three times a week. My name is Mr. Griffin and I along with Mrs. Steffenhagen will be your child’s physical education teachers this year. We are excited and proud to be members of this fine staff at Georgetown School and looking forward to working with you to educate your children on how to become fit and healthy individuals. With your assistance, we hope you will continue to foster the lessons learned in physical education because physical activity beyond P. E. is essential in remaining healthy!
Below we have listed some guidelines we have established to hopefully make this year a safe and wonderful experience. If you have any questions/concerns, please give us a call at (630) 375-3473. Thank you for your support.
The students must have proper gym shoes that are secure with Velcro/shoelaces to insure safety for all. Socks must be worn with gym shoes. High bottom (platform and wedge) gym shoes and skate shoes are not allowed.
If dresses/skirts are worn, the students should have shorts on underneath. Please have them dress comfortably and safely. We have the right to limit a student’s movement due to restrictive clothing to help prevent potential injury.
If your child needs to be excused from P. E. class, please have a signed note for them so we can keep it on file. After the third day, a doctor’s note is required.
Please keep us informed of any medical conditions that might affect your child’s participation in P.E. If anything has changed from the beginning of the school year in regards to your child’s health, please give us a phone call.
Discipline/positive procedures will be handled in class/school. You may receive a letter or phone call in regards to (+/-) behavior.
Mr. Griffin and Mrs. Steffenhagen

Students commit to running 25 miles (one mile at a time) before October 20 and track their miles. They run their final 1.2 miles of their marathon on Saturday, October 21 at Naperville North High School and receive a shirt and finisher medal.
