Welcome back to 2015-16 school year! I am Brittany Bowman and this is my 14th year in Chase City Elementary. Also teaching PE is Anita Walker and this is her 4th year here at CCES. We are returning with much enthusiasm and excitement! This year in physical education and health class students will be learning a variety of movement techniques, sports skills, and health and fitness concepts as well as how to interact with other while participating in the activities. Instruction will be guided by the Virginia physical education and health SOLs along with academic SOLs. Student grades will be based on activity participation, use of class time, skill performance, citizenship skills, and respecting property. Activity participation portion of the grade and the skill performance portion of the grade will be based on the student’s participation and performance on physical education activities. Below is a list of rules, rewards, and consequences that will help students be successful in physical education and health class. Please review the following with your child, and know that I believe in rewarding students as much as possible.
