    3. “sit out”/focus remainder of period and receive minimal participation points-contact parent
    4. Referral for major infractions (harm to self or others as well as disrespectful behaviors and repeated behaviors)

     

    Dressing out Policy

    A student is required to change their clothes before participating in Physical Education. This is to ensure that proper hygiene is taken into account as well as not allowing students to wear sweaty clothes into their next class or in cold weather. This also prevents any damage to their normal every day school clothes. In Physical Education clothes may be ripped, torn, or even discolored (sweat stains).

    Proper shoes are required at all times. A shoe with closed toe and heel is optimal (no spikes, heels, or flip flops). A student should be able to run in the shoe they choose for physical education. Socks will not be permitted as shoes due to slipping and injury.

    Appropriate Items of clothing: a comfortable work out tee, shorts that are to mid thigh or knee, capris, pants, tennis shoes, socks, and even sweatshirts.

    Items that are not appropriate are: Cut off jeans, spaghetti strap shirts, tank tops, low cut shirts, short shorts, sandals, flip flops, high heels, clothing that may be offensive to others, and clothing that bares the midriff.

     

     

    Locker Room

    1. You are to be in the locker room when the TARDY BELL RINGS
    2. Dress in the locker room area, NOT IN THE BATHROOM OR SHOWER AREA
    3. LOCK UP EVERYTHING! A locker and combination lock will be provided for each student.
    4. THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ARTICLES.
    5. You are allowed to shower after activity class. If you wish to shower, inform your teacher and bring a towel from home.

     

     

    1. BEFORE A STUDENT LEAVES THE LOCKER ROOM TO GO TO THE GYM, ALL PERSONAL ITEMS MUST BE LOCKED UP. This includes cell phones.  Cell phones are not allowed in the gym or classroom at any point.  They are not to be in pockets or on the table in the gym. NO ITEMS SHOULD BE ON THE FLOOR OR BENCHES.
    2. IF A LOCK IS NOT RETURNED A STUDENT WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE LOCK.
    3. Once all students have dressed and left the locker room, the door will be locked. If a student has an emergency where they need to return to the locker room, they will be accompanied by another student.

     

    Excuses

    1. You may be excused a maximum of 3 days in a nine week period with a parental excuse. An alternate assignment will be provided.
    2. You may be excused with a DOCTOR’S note for the duration of the time noted on the doctor’s excuse. An alternate written assignment may be provided.
    3. If you have exceeded 5 absences, you will have the opportunity to earn your points back for days missed by walking in the gymnasium. However, if you fail to make up your points before the semester is over, your grade for the day missed will remain a zero.

    Grades:

    Each lesson and unit there will be assessments, quizzes, and final tests. You will have two separate grades for health, driver’s education, and PE. At the end of the term they will be combined and averaged for your final grade in 9th grade. In 10th grade Driver’s Education is a separate grade and does not get combined with physical education grade.

     

    This means in order to receive the grade you want you need to put forth the commitment and effort in both classes.

     

    Physical Education Grade

    Your Physical Education Grade is determined through assessments, quizzes, tests, cumulative exams, participation (dressing out and staying active), and ATTENDANCE (BEING ON TIME AND BEING IN CLASS)

     

    Health/Classroom Grade

    Your Health/Classroom Grade is determined through assessments, quizzes, tests, cumulative exams, class projects, in class projects, and participation (being actively involved and engaged in the lesson).

    Each activity the student will be actively engaged in a lifelong activity. This means that once students graduate they can continue these activities within the community and remain physically active for a lifetime.

     

    Physical Education Participation Grade

    Students are expected to participate with maximum effort to the best of their ability.

    10           Actively engaged in ALL activities during the entire class

    9              Actively engaged in majority of activities, majority of the time (60 min)

    8              Engaged in activities during at least half of the class time (45 min)

    7              Performs at a minimal level for duration of the activity (30 min)

    5              Minimal to no effort was displayed during the class period (less than 30 min)

    0              Not engaged in any activities at any time during the class period

     

    **If a student fails to dress out they will only be able to earn 5 points for that day if they participate fully with the class.

     

    Most, if not all, assignments will be completed in class.  If there is an assignment that needs time outside of class, students will be given ample time to complete.  

     

    *A good way for student/Parent/Guardian to track progress is to sign up for Parent/Student portal.  This will give access to current assignments, missed assignments, and progress.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us regarding any issues.
