At least three requests are required in order for your request to be considered and allow us to balance classroom assignments. Parent request should be made on sound educational criteria.

It is not always possible to honor requests; we need to equally balance homerooms. If none of your requests can be honored because of this situation, you will be notified.
In the event of a staff resignation or reassignment, your child will remain in the originally assigned homeroom.

The Physical Education program is designed with a focus on:
- Developing physical fitness & understanding the benefits of being physically active.
- Developing movement skills and manipulative skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities.
- Developing a sense of fair play, good sportsmanship, teamwork and respect of others.
- Developing the desire to be physically active for good health & enjoyment.
Students at Forrest St. receive 30 minutes of Physical Education every other day on our six day rotation. Please be sure to note the days your child will attend PE. The students are generally very active during class. It is helpful if they dressed comfortably for activities that require a variety of movements. Please provide your child with a safe pair of “gym” shoes with non-marking soles on Physical Education days. Students may wear other shoes to school and change into their gym shoes before class. Inappropriate shoes (sandals, flip-flops, dress shoes) can become a safety hazard when moving in the gym or outside and may even hinder your child’s physical development in certain skills and movements.
