Physical Education and Health
Welcome to the BMS Physical Education web page. Our physical education program is diverse and affords our students numerous opportunities for learning and growth.
Gym Lockers: We have boys' and girls' locker rooms. Students are assigned a locker with a combination lock. This locker is to ensure the security of their possessions while the student is in and out of physical education class. We ask students not to share this combination to ensure the security of their possessions.
Gym Uniform and Hygiene Requirements
1. Change into a white T-shirt comfortable for activity in the locker room: No cut-off t-shirts or tank tops; shirts must be appropriate length (able to be tucked in), inappropriate words/images are not permitted.
2. Wear Active shorts or pants/leggings to school OR change into them before class: Shorts should be appropriate length for physical activity. Sweatpants or warm-ups are recommended for colder weather.
3. Sneakers and socks
Please do not wear jewelry: Please do not wear necklaces, watches, hoop or dangling earrings.
Please use deodorant: Please use deodorant and keep it in your locker at all times (No spray cans or perfume/cologne, no Axe body spray).
