Welcome to ESPE 2016/17

Welcome to CAC to our new families and welcome back to the old!

I would like to Welcome Mr. Dion to the ESPE Department  Mr Dion will be teaching Grades 2 and 4. 

All students in K-5 have PE twice per week either in the pool, the gym or out on the field/court during the year.  They will have 1 x 60 minute class and 1 x 30 minute class each week. Our very first units for K-5 students are Swimming for the 1 hour class and Gross Motor Skills for the 30 minute class, which runs from August 17th until October 6th. This year we will start swimming from Day 1. Here are the dates for the first swimming class for the year.

Wed 17th August – Grade 2 Kristoff, Grade 3 Widding, Grade 4 Flynn, Grade 5 Kasel
Thurs 18th August - Grade 1Morales, Grade 2 Moustafa, Grade 5 O’Sullivan
Sun 21st August - Grade 3 Hicks, Grade 2 Rozalen, Grade 4 Clausen, Grade 1Carr
Mon22nd August - Grade 3 Carr, Grade 1 Saunders, Grade 4 Davis, Grade 5 Greene
Tues 23rd August - Kindergarten Chavez, Kindergarten Siegel, Grade 4 Salama

For swimming each child should have, in a separate swim bag:

·       An appropriate swimsuit (no string bikinis),
·       OWN pair of properly fitted goggled (not shared with siblings)
·       Suitably sized towel
·       Long hair tied back off the face or a swim cap (girls and boys)
·       No jewelry, including rubber and string bands, and watches
·       Easy to take on and off clothes and shoes (crocs are ideal)

Dressing for PE Class

Starting September 1st all students K-5 are required to wear the CAC Elementary PE uniform. PE uniform is not required to be worn on swimming days.

  • CAC Elementary PE uniforms (sold at the School Store) consist of :- the monogrammed t-shirt or long sleeve shirt, the monogrammed navy blue/black shorts or long pants, the monogrammed sweatshirt (in cold weather), athletic shoes and socks. Students may also wear their House or Kids’ Day shirts to PE.
  • Jewelry, including rubber and string bands, and watches MUST be removed for all Swimming and PE classes (small stud earrings are okay). It is best that these items not be worn on PE days, to protect them from being lost or forgotten.
  • If your child needs to be excused from PE for any reason please send a note directly to his/her PE teacher or email them prior to 7:30am the day they are to be excused.
  • A parent note is acceptable only for the first day of illness. Children who arrive without a note will participate in the lesson, whether in the pool, gym, or otherwise. 
  • Parent notes cannot be accepted for 2 consecutive PE days of illness. If a child needs to be excused for more than one day, a doctor's note written in English (not a prescription) is required with the reason and dates to be excused.

We hope you have a great year and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions!
