Woodrow Wilson Junior High Coach Shawna Ward
To the Students and Parents:
Hello!! Welcome to 8th grade Physical Education class. I am looking forward to a fantastic year and with all of us working together we will be able to achieve it. Parents, as you are aware, your support is an important role in assuring a student’s success in school. My conference period is from 7:10am-8:04am. My classroom is the competition gym and office 503. My email address is: email@example.com.
Be Safe: Use the equipment properly and only when instructed to do so.
Do Right: Do not leave clothes or trash on the floor, stands, or in the locker rooms.
Work Hard: No cell phones use, unless instructed by a coach otherwise expect to be moving all the time. The policy for cell phone, iPods, radio, games, or any other electronic devices is to be put away, turned off, and out of sight. If any of these items are out or heard. The item will be picked up.
Be kind: Treat other students with respect and keep your hands to yourself.
