The purpose of physical education is to develop physically-literate students. Students who  acquire the knowledge, processes, skills, and confidence needed to make healthy decisions and  engage in meaningful physical activity both in the present and for a lifetime.  Each year the students are introduced to more challenging activities that lead into skills used in lifetime sports and fitness activities.  As a result of physical education instruction, the student will be able to:
Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
*Acquire, apply, and evaluate movement concepts and strategies to respond confidently, competently, and creatively in a variety of physical activity settings.
*Assess, evaluate, and synthesize health-related information to protect, enhance, and advocate for health, well-being, safety, and participation in physical activity across a life span.
* Enjoy and engage in regular movement-based learning experiences and understand and appreciate their significance to personal, social, cultural, and environmental health practices and outcomes. 


PE Grade Explanations
In PE we are working on a set of objectives during each 9 week grading period. These objectives change and therefore your child’s grade may fluctuate from 4 to 1 to reflect their success with the skills for that grading period. A “3” in resource is a very good grade, especially since we only see your child once a week. We will post an objective overview for each grading period so you will be aware of the skills that were covered. 

4 - Student’s performance exceeds standard(s) expectation, consistently produces outstanding work.
frequency of behavior, nearly all the time, requires no support when demonstrating understanding
demonstrates a thorough understanding of content taught, makes no major errors or omission when demonstrating
concepts or processes taught
3 - Student’s performance meets standard(s) expectation, consistently produces quality work.
frequency of behavior, most of the time, requires limited support when demonstrating understanding
demonstrates a general understanding of content taught, no major errors or omissions when demonstrating concepts or
2 - Student’s performance is approaching standard(s) expectation, inconsistently applies learned skills.
frequency of behavior, some of the time, requires moderate support in order to demonstrate understanding concepts and
skills, demonstrates a partial understanding of content taught, some errors or omissions when demonstrating concepts
or processes
1- Student’s performance is below standard(s), frequently requires re-teaching.
frequency of behavior, seldom, requires considerable support to demonstrate learning of concepts and skills, demonstrates
limited understanding of concepts, skills and processes taught, frequent major errors when demonstrating concepts
or processes.
