1. How long is/was your child's school day (minus any after school activities)?

2. Who are you rooting for in the Superbowl?

3. What did you have for breakfast today?

Actually, AP classes don't interfere with required PE credits students must have for graduation if taken correctly.

That is one concern.  But the research shows it isn't a huge factor.  I was concerned about that personally, with The Girl and math in particular. It proved to be not a problem, which is what our district has found as well.

Marching band should MORE than fulfill the PE requirement. They march, being physically active, for 2 hours a day all fall semester, and three weeks for 5 hours a day. It's very physically demaninding. Even more so for the colorguard.

Just because they get exercise, like any other kid who does things outside of school does not mean they should not have to do PE, IMO. Are all kids in the marching band in good shape, none are overweight?

My girls love swimming too, the only strange thing is keeping up with the schedule or A/B day it falls on, Lol. But I love that schools offer swimming as PE, The only time I got to swim when I was in high school was after school practice at the local college.

I loved that I had gym 8th period when I was in school and had swimming as I just got on the bus and went home and could take a shower.

Sure there are overweight kids in band.  Just like in football or PE.

My kids have had to take a number of courses online in order to fit in everything, esp since the younger one transferred back to public school and had to rake these ridiculous state required courses for graduation that were not required at the private school.

1. How long is/was your child's school day (minus any after school activities)? I think 8:30 till 2:30, so 6 hours.

2. Who are you rooting for in the Superbowl? I do not watch or follow sports.

3. What did you have for breakfast today? Muesli.

"Leftover Pasta with Shrimp and Artichokes." ---- That sounds really good.
