Physical Education: Coach Anderson

Hello,

My name is Coach Anderson. I am a Physical Education teacher here at Western Peaks Elementar and Cimarron Springs Elementary. This is my 13th year in education. Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions or concerns. My email is aaron.anderson@dysart.org , and my office phone number is (623)523-8750.

Grades

Grade K-4 students are on a 5 day rotation for PE. I see these students for 5 straight days. They have art, music, and I-explore when they're not in PE. I give my students a grade for every five day rotation. If a student is not in attendance for more than one of those 5 days, he/she will have to do some make-up work to receive full credit for the days that they missed. Students are graded on their level of participation, progress, and behavior.

Grade 6-8 students are on a quarterly rotation for PE. I see these students every other day for the quarter that they're in my class. The electives that are offered this year are art, music, I-explore, and band (optional) when they are not in PE. I give my students a grade for every five day rotation. If a student is not in attendance for more than on day or more within 2 weeks, he/she will have to do some make-up work to receive full credit for the days that they missed. Students are graded on their level of participation, progress, and behavior.

Appropriate dress for PE

Students are required to wear shoes when participating in PE. Students are not allowed to participate if they wear boots or sandals.

Electronic devices

Students are encouraged not to bring their phones, ipods, or mp3s to PE. Students ARE allowed to bring these devices when we are running the mile in PE.

Sick or injured

If a student is sick or injured prior to coming to PE, it is encouraged to bring a note from a parent, guardian, or doctor. The note should specify why the student isn't participating, and the length of time that they'll not be participating in PE.

Thanks,

Coach Anderson
