GRADES

 

   In Physical Education, students are graded in four areas. Being prepared for class is 20% of a student’s ten week grade. Written work and tests are 20% of their grade.  Participation, 40% of the grade, includes daily participation in warm-ups and class activities, working to develop skills, contributing to class discussions, cooperation, safety and being on time to class. A student’s skill development over the course of a unit is 20%of their grade.  


                                                                     PROPER ATTIRE FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION


                                  All students must change for physical education class. For safety and hygiene, shorts or sweatpants, and tee-shirts should be worn and these should be separate from a student's daily attire. Proper footwear is essential for safety. Sneakers will be the only footwear allowed in class and they must be tied. If weather permits, students may be going outside.  They should have a sweatshirt or jacket if the weather is cool. Extra socks and sneakers are suggested for early morning classes.
