AUGUST 2018
To all ​parents/guardians:

The after-school open gym and intramural program is back again! Open gym is a great opportunity for SCA students to have an after-school playtime or to enjoy playing intramural team sports. All sessions are free of charge. The grades and dates for each session are on the chart below.

K-3 open gyms will be one hour in length and consist of open, non-competitive play and large group games. Open gyms for Grades 4-8 will be 45 minutes in length, and consist of various intramural sports with randomly selected teams. All participants will have an opportunity to purchase a beverage after each session.

In past years, gym attire wasn’t an issue, since most grade levels shared the same day of P.E. However, most grades will split their P.E. days this year. Open gym participants are allowed to bring a change of clothes, but most importantly, all students at open gym MUST wear athletic or gym shoes to participate!​ Without gym shoes, students will have to sit out!

Students also must follow the open gym rules, and may lose out on playtime if the rules are not followed:

1. Respect all other participants

2. Use equipment as directed

3. Share! (the space and equipment)

4. Immediately stop play on signal
