Physical Education



The Physical Education Program at P.S. 182 provides a curriculum that promotes health and wellness to all of our students. Students engage in activities that inspire a lifestyle that encourages fitness and nutrition.

Our students also gain exposure to various team sports which fosters the importance of working together as a team. Our goal is for each of our students to stay fit, stay healthy, and stay active throughout the course of their lives.



Welcome Back Parents,

Mr. Jelloe and I (Ms. Vance), the PE teachers at P.S.182Q would like to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. We are very excited to be part of a school community that promotes health and fitness.

Over the next three and half months we will be teaching our students ways to improve their aerobic fitness, muscular fitness and their flexibility. During this time students will learn the proper techniques used to improve running, push-ups, curl-ups, bicep curls, triceps kickbacks, squats, lunges and yoga poses.

While the students are participating in the physical activities throughout the school year, we want to make sure they are safe and properly dressed. Therefore it is important that sneakers and comfortable clothing are worn on the day or days your child has physical education classes. If possible, we would like your child to wear sweat pants. If not, jeans are fine. If your daughter wears a dress on the day she has a physical education class, please make sure pants or shorts are worn underneath. On the days your child wears sandals or boots due to the weather, please send sneakers along so they can change into the appropriate footwear. Safety and being careful in the gym are our biggest concerns. Having your child dress properly creates an environment for performing exercises carefully and safely while still having fun. We know you want what is best for your child. So please help us do the same by making sure your child is properly dressed for physical ed. classes.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to helping your child to become more fit and healthy for life.

The Physical Education Teachers
