I. Grading -You will start with 10 points every day. Points will be taken away if you do not abide by the following:
DRESSING OUT -No tank tops, sleeveless shirts, “short shorts,” and NO JEANS -Students must wear some sort of athletic shoe (tennis shoe, running shoe, basketball shoe, etc.) No boots, dress shoes, flip-flops, or sandals. -Students must wear socks at all times during PE. -I strongly encourage you to change your clothes for PE because you will sweat in this class! - If you forget appropriate clothes, you may still participate for ½ credit. If this becomes a constant problem, a parent will be notified and other consequences may occur. YOU MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CORRECT SHOES ON. -Contact Youth Service Center (next to library entrance), if you may need assistance in obtaining clothes/ shoes to dress out properly for PE.
PARTICIPATION -PE is an activity class, and you are expected to actively participate. Some written work may also be required. -If you do not to participate for the day, or you do not have on proper shoes, you will be given an alternate assignment that you will earn 2 points for. Failure to fully complete this assignment will result in a “0” which cannot be made up. -A parent or doctor’s note must be provided in order to earn the full 10 points for the alternate assignment. A doctor’s note will be required if you cannot participate for 3 or more days. You must also bring in a release from the doctor if the doctor orders you to sit out for any period of time. -An average of daily grades, quizzes, test, writing pieces, and a final will determine your daily grade.
ATTENDANCE -If you are absent from school you will not receive credit for that day, but it will also not hurt your grade. Because this is primarily a participation class, you will not receive credit when you are not here. *Alternate assignment will be left up to the teacher if multiple absences occur.
Grading Scale A 100-90 B 89-80 C 79-70 D 69-60 E 59 and below
II. Class Procedure -Students are to be on their spot when the tardy bell rings. -Students will immediately stand in their spots so I can take roll, then they will go to the locker room to change, and be back on your spot in 5 minutes to begin class. (If you are late, 2 points will be deducted from your participation grade.) -Class will begin with a warm up, stretch, and a brief introduction explaining the activities for the day and relaying any information I may need to give to you. -After daily activity, you will have time to go to the locker room to clean up and change clothes. *Lock up all valuable items in a locker, or give valuables to teacher to lock up in office. People do steal!
