Welcome to the Mark Twain Physical Education Program!

Here at Mark Twain, students in grades K through 8th receive a combination of physical education, health, and fitness classes weekly. It is our goal to have our students moving and active while in school, and provide them with the knowledge and tools to make healthy decisions outside of school. Our Physical Education Program focuses on improving the students sport skills, fitness skills, locomotor skills and non-locomotor skills.

As always, students are required to wear their complete PE uniforms on days that they have gym in order to participate. Gym uniforms can be purchased in the main office. Please keep in mind, if your child is not in their PE uniform twice in a quarter their PE grade will drop one letter grade. A complete uniform consists of:

- A Mark Twain Royal Blue T-shirt or Sweatshirt

- Gym Shoes

- ROYAL BLUE Mark Twain shorts or sweat pants

- PLAIN NAVY sweatpants or shorts. Navy pants CANNOT have any logos or writing on them.

New This Year!

We love to see our Twain families being active! Please send with your students or email amgillette@cps.edu pictures of your family being active outside of school. All pictures will displayed on our #Twainfitfams board inside of our gymnasium!

We look forward to a great and active 2016/2017 school year! Please check back for updates throughout the year!
