Physical Education

Welcome to Mr. Wells’ P. E. Class

I am so excited to start my third year here at Rockaway Meadow School.  It has been such a pleasure working at this amazing school with so many amazing students.  One of the best things about teaching physical education here at RMS is that I have the opportunity to interact with each and every student in our school. If you have any questions or concerns you have regarding your child's physical education class, the best way to reach me is by email at or you may leave messages with the office at 973-263-7308.

What is the Purpose of Physical Education?

It is my goal to help guide your child toward living a healthy and active lifestyle.  I like to promote having fun while learning ways to stay active for the rest of their lives. We are able to do this through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that children will be able to cultivate their knowledge and practice the skills that will increase their understanding of the importance of maintaining fitness and wellness.

Google Classroom

I hope to keep our lines of communication as open as possible.  To be able to do this I have designed a Google Classroom.  This will allow me to send articles, videos, or updates to our PE class on My Google Classroom.  To access the google classroom you will need to use your child’s school email account and go to the website, from there you will go to join class.  It will ask for a class code, type this code (ykk3su) into that section and you will be all set, but you must make sure you log in through your child’s school email account.  These posts will encompass many aspects of Physical Education and will help strengthen not only your child’s interests in PE, but yours as well.


PE Class Guidelines

Safety is my #1 Rule.

The following rules will help to provide a safe environment in the gym:

  • 1 Students must have sneakers to participate (No platform, open-back, or open-toed sneakers).
  • 2  Refrain from wearing low hanging jewelry.
  • 3  Students should wear clothing that lets them move freely. They will be active, sitting on the floor and going outside. Please be sure that they are not wearing clothing that would prohibit any of these activities.
  • 4  If a student must be excused from participating due to illness or injury, please send a note into school. To be excused for more that 2 classes, a doctor’s note stating the duration of the excuse needs to be sent to the school nurse.
  • 5  Mrs. Capitanelli, our nurse, and I work closely to ensure that a student's special needs are met.
  • 6  Please keep us informed of any health concerns that may affect your child's participation in class.
