Mr. Fietek's PE

Course description

The P.E. class will learn about various aspects of physical education. We will pursue a variety of activities throughout the semester (weight training, archery, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, etc.) and learn what it takes to lead a healthy lifestyle. The lessons are aligned with the 7 State standards regarding physical education. The students are expected to dress out daily and participate to the best of their capabilities. Dressing out consists of wearing their P.E. uniform which is the Jefferson P.E. t-shirt with their name written on the front, and any athletic shorts (no jeans, jean shorts, or cargo shorts for safety purposes) or sweats. Tennis shoes are required (no sandals, flip flops, high heels, etc.) for safety purposes (eliminates slipping on the floor, protects the toes, decreases the chances of sprains, protects against rocks while outside, etc.) as well as necessary for full range of movement during activity. Participation and dressing out is a requirement and points are deducted from the student’s grade for each violation. A P.E. locker is assigned to the students for their belongings when dressing out.

Class work and Homework:

Throughout the semester the students will be assessed through skills tests, fitness tests, written tests, and quizzes. Fitness tests are the monthly mile run and PACER. I will notify the students when the skills and fitness tests are as well as the written tests and quizzes so they can prepare for them and ensure they have writing material if needed. Extra credit is also offered to cancel out a “no-dress” (up to 3 times per student) which will consist of writing a one page paper (handwritten) on anything P.E. or health related.

Classroom management policies:

All students are expected to be courteous and responsible for their own actions and respect the feelings of everyone in the class at all times. Following all rules regarding safe behavior with all equipment is required. Unsafe behavior is never tolerated (which includes rough or dangerous play, misuse of equipment, horse play in the locker room, etc.). The skill levels of everyone in the class will vary considerably and all students will be respected regardless of skill level. Teasing, mocking, harassing, bullying, and intimidating other students will not be tolerated. Any student being disruptive, unsafe, or disrespectful will be dealt with on an individual basis. Consequences could include: Removal from the activity, a referral to the office, or a phone call home.

Grading policy:

Students grades are based on the following percentage for each student: Dressing out/Participation= 50%. Skills tests=15%. Fitness tests =15%. Written tests and quizzes=10%. Following directions= 10%. Each “no dress” or day not participating for the student results in a 5 point reduction of their final grade. If your child has a medical release, condition, or waiver please bring it to my attention so I can assign an alternate activity if unable to participate. Skills tests and fitness tests are based on individual improvement, concepts understanding, effort, and the national healthy fitness zones for their age.
