Expectations and Grading

Students will be graded daily on the following:

 Ø  Preparation: Every student must arrive on time and be prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear for PE. (10%)

Ø  Participation: Actively participate in the activities we have planned for each day. (30%)

 Ø  Behavior/Respect: Have respect for oneself, the facilities, the equipment, the teacher, their classmates and the curriculum.  Be good people! (30%)

ØPerformance/Effort: Do their individual best no matter what the unit.  Not everyone likes every activity we pursue here in PE, but that is not an excuse for giving anything but their best effort. (30%)

Additionally, there may be few written or skill assessments throughout the year.  The amount and nature of the assessments will depend on grade level.  These assessments may be in the form of quizzes, skill tests, short writing assignments, etc.

Locker Room

Ø  Students are expected to go into the locker room, change and come directly into the gym to complete their instant activity.

Ø  Lockers may be used for storing their items during the class period only.  Locks will not be necessary, but try to make sure they leave any expensive items in their school locker, or better yet, at home.Ø  Students are expected to pick up after themselves after each period and remove all personal belongings from the locker room.


Medical Excuses

Ø  Our expectation is that if a student is healthy enough to attend school then they are healthy enough to participate in PE. We do understand that there are extenuating circumstances that will necessitate a student being excused from class. The Physical Education policies and expectations are consistent with those stated in the Student Handbook.
