Miss Nicole Moore
My name is Nicole Moore and this is my 10th (woo-hoo!) year teaching Physical Education at Pioneer! I am looking forward to teaching our Kinder, 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students! Dawn Nistal, (our other FANTASTIC P.E. teacher) will be teaching all 2nd grade P.E. classes. Aside from teaching, my passions include listening to music, reading books, and spending time in the great outdoors! Often I can be found running, biking, playing tennis, fishing, playing with my 2 nephews and niece, and of course, watching BOISE STATE FOOTBALL! GO BRONCOS! While I love all sports, my background is in running where I competed in Cross-Country and Track and Field at the collegiate level; I am an All-American in Track and Field.
In order for each P.E. class to thrive, there are a few things I need to be sure students and parents are aware of:
TENNIS SHOES ONLY--NO FLIP FLOPS, BOOTS, CROCS, OR HEELS
It is our Physical Education policy that all students need to wear tennis shoes for P.E. Without the correct shoes, injuries tend to happen more frequently and we do not want anyone to get hurt. If your student wants to wear other shoes during the day and bring tennis shoes to change into, then that will be fine, but tennis shoes are mandatory for participation. In my office I have a place for students to leave their tennis shoes should they prefer keep them at school. If a student does not have the proper shoes, then he/she will unfortunately miss out on our activities for that day and if it happens regularly, it can affect his/her overall P.E. grade.
Girls should not wear skirts or dresses on P.E. days (skirts and dresses can get caught in the scooters we use and they can also present problems when performing certain stretches or strengthening activities.
HATS AND SUNSCREEN
Hats are allowed on days that our class is outside Also, during the first few months of school and the last few of the year, it is important to be sure to wear sunscreen.
There is a drinking fountain in the gym for students to use however on days that we are outside, water is limited during class so it is highly recommended that students bring a water bottle.
Did you know it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile? So we hope not only to be safe but to have lots of fun learning about a TON of different sports, skills, and fitness concepts!
If a student is UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE in P.E. on a given day, I need a note from home or the doctor excusing that student from P.E.--otherwise it can affect that student's overall participation grade.
If you have any more questions regarding P.E., please feel free to e-mail me at Moore.Nicole@westada.org or you can reach me at 855-4100 ext. 1600.
I am looking forward to a great year, and am so grateful to be part of the Pioneer community! GOOO PUMAS!
