Message from Coach Matt

Dear Green Valley Parents,

Now that warm weather and clear skies are hopefully on their way I want to give you some updated information for my P.E. class and Run Club.

Run Club will pick back up on March 17th and we will run from 8-8:30 am every Friday until late May. I will need some volunteers to help keep track with laps, as well as provide water and hot chocolate for the runners. Parents are also encouraged to participate and run with the kids!

Right now, in P.E., students in 1st-5th grade are participating in Presidential Fitness Testing. They are being tested in Running, Sit Ups, Push Ups, Sit and Reach, and Shuttle Run. It is really fun to see them do such a great job with these tests. Please remember to send them to P.E. class wearing appropriate sports wear, tennis shoes, and their Colts T-shirt on P.E. days.

Thank you to everyone who turned in Box Tops. All the money raised went to buying recess equipment. Keep turning them into the office and lets raise more money for next year's collection in the fall.

P.E. Expecations


In an effort to provide the best environment for safe and successful learning, parents need to make sure their children dress properly for P.E.

  • Students should be wearing athletic shoes with socks.  NO flip flops, Tevas, Keens, Uggs, boots, Shape Ups, slip-ons or skateboard shoes.
  • Shoelaces (or straps) must be tied tightly!!
  • Students need to be in comfortable clothing - shorts, swats, etc.  Jeans, skirts, and dresses ARE NOT to be worn for P.E.


Water Bottle:

​Please send your child to school with a water bottle on P.E. Days.  It must include their NAME!


Student Injuries & Illness:

Students need to bring a note from a parent/guardian if they are unable to participate.  This note is only valid for one week of P.E. classes.  If more time is needed to heal, a note from a doctor is required.  It is our belief that while an injury/illness may prevent a child from doing ALL activities during P.E. class, there are many activities in which they can still participate with some modifications.  Thus, all notes to the P.E. Teacher should include:

  • Date
  • Specific injury or illness
  • Specific activities child is not allowed to participate in 
  • Parents signature and phone number
