Dear Parent(s) /Guardian(s),


    My name is Edward Harris and I will be your child’s physical education teacher this school year. A quality physical education program is offered to students as part of the general curriculum at Cleveland St. Elementary School.  The physical education program is designed to lead students to an active healthy lifestyle that promotes a life-long commitment to wellness.

    In order to provide the best possible experience for your child, we must all work together as a team! Please remind your child to dress appropriately for physical education each day.  For comfort and safety purposes, he/she should wear sneakers, shorts/sweat pants and t-shirt/sweat shirt.  P.E. uniforms should be in the following colors/combinations: blue, gray, white, black. (No graphic tees or sweats, solid colors).  Your child’s classroom teacher will inform you of the days your child has physical education.

    Physical activity must be done regularly to achieve health benefits. Therefore, your child’s participation is very important.  If he/she is sick or unable to participate in all activities, please let the nurse or myself know via note or phone call prior to the scheduled class.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. My contact information is as follows:
