Physical Education

Located on the wall in the entrance to the gym, there is a sign that reads "Deerfield students are Fitness All-Stars". I am asking you to send in a picture of your student(s) doing something that keeps him/her physically fit. I will then put it on the wall under the sign, where it will hang for the rest of the year. My wall does not say "sports all-stars" because physical fitness and Physical Education are way more than playing team sports. So, your student's picture could be something as simple as them riding their bike, playing basketball in your driveway, or doing yoga in your living room. As long as it shows them keeping themselves fit, it's fair game! (of course, team sports pictures are also welcome) Please consider the size of your picture. In the 5X7 range would be perfect. Also, please do not send them in with one that you would like back at the end of the year. It is my goal to get a picture from every student​​. I look forward to seeing what the students bring in, and proudly displaying the pictures in the gym.

Save the Date! Jump Rope for Heart will be March 9, 2018. We can't wait to see you there!
