Classroom Management Plan:
Take good care of equipment and locker room facilities. Be respectful to the instructor, substitute teacher, and other students in the class. Have a positive attitude, exemplify sportsmanship, be on time, and do not use inappropriate language. Any Student who disobeys rules established in the Student Handbook throughout the semester will be subjected to disciplinary action. Flipping towels is dangerous and will also result in disciplinary action.
Grades will be determined in a point system. 90% of total grade is participation/dressing out along with attndance, 10% of total grade is social behavior. Total points earned divided by total possible points. Students will start each week with 100 points and be deducted by no dress (10pts a day) and non-participation (10 pts a day; 20 points a day are social/behavior and will be deducted if necessary).
Excused - No-dress must be accompanied by a written, dated, and signed note from either a parent (2 per nine weeks), or a signed doctors note.
(Medical problems, asthma, etc. inhaler, or any medical condition must be reported!)
After 3 absences (excused or not) a one page paper must be written on health or fitness topic for every day missed (due the week of absence, or if on Friday the following return to school day).
