Reminder Phys-Ed Students
Students are required to change during class because they are expected to sweat, so an appropriate level of hygiene should be maintained.
Kennedy Uniform Update
In order to participate and earn full marks in Phys-Ed Class, the following uniform must be worn:
· Supportive Running shoes with laces
