Why do I have to wear sneakers?
In PE, the #1 rule is to have fun! Unfortunately, it's hard to have fun if you aren't safe. That is why we have to wear athletic shoes that protect our feet, fit correctly, and don't mark up the gym floor.
What do I do if my parents don't want me to participate in PE because I have been hurt or sick?
Always bring a signed note from a parent, guardian, or doctor if you are unable to participate. Mrs. Bowman or Mrs. Tucker will keep it so they know when you are able to participate again.
Do I get a grade in PE?
A student in Greenville County will receive a grade in related arts classes. In PE, grading is as follows:
Q = 98 Quality demonstration of standard
M = 88 Meets standard (Highest grade for K5-2nd)
P = 78 Progressing towards standard
L = 68 Little or no progression towards standard
What happens if I wear the wrong shoes to class?
Whenever possible, a student that wears inappropriate shoes to class will walk out of bounds during class so they still get some exercise. Also, the daily grade is dropped to an "M" or an 88. Any additional times that the students does not wear appropriate shoes that quarter, the grade will be dropped to a "P" or 78 which means "progressing toward standards. Remember...Movin' Monday, Training Tuesday, Workout Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, and Fitness Friday can help you remember your sneakers!!
What can you do to improve your health??? We can commit to any or all of the following:
1. 5 fruits and vegetables a day.
2. 2 hours OR LESS of screen time a day.
3. 1 hour of exercise a day.
4. 0 sodas and sugary drinks.
5. 8 cups of water a day.
What will your healthy GOAL be??? Remember...Good Health--
Live your goal!
