When he was in PE for 5th grade EVERY activity no matter how small sent him low. Yesterday he went from 227 to 70 from just 20 minutes of walking the dog. Excercise drops him like a rock! This is what scares me so much with the walk and swim thing.

He does have a bag just like this. I think if he remembered to take it that would be fine. My two worries with that are the heat, it would be around 115 during the days they would be swimming, and this is an outdoor pool. Not sure if they have tables to set stuff on. My other concern would be jerky kids. My daughter used to tell me that there was a group of kids in her PE class who got in trouble EVERY day for throwing other kid's stuff into the pool. Sigh am I over thinking this?

They excuse a child from the required one semester of PE if they take a full year of band. HUH? Um ok. He said he'd rather take PE than band.
