Course Syllabus

Physical Education

Course Description: The physical education program incorporates several content areas in a comprehensive program.  Four main objectives include social interaction, active lifestyle, physical fitness, and basic sports understanding.  The program utilizes age appropriate activities that are adaptable for students in grades 6, 7, and 8. 

Course Grading Policy:  The students will be graded daily based on effort and on task behavior. Their EFFORT reflects how much they perform to their ability.  ON-TASK behavior is determined by how well the students adhere to the guidelines, rules and criteria set for the individual class. See grading rubric below.

Unable to participate

If a student is unable to participate, a note must be brought in and signed by the nurse before the start of class.  If you need to be excused for longer than 1 week a medical excuse from a physician is required, the note should be taken to the nurse and the nurse will provide the Phys. Ed teacher with a copy.  A doctor’s note will be required before any student is allowed to return to active participation.

Proper Attire:

 

~ALL STUDENTS are expected to come to class wearing a t-shirt, athletic shorts or pants, and sneakers that stay on their feet.

~It is important that they come to school in the appropriate attire on days when they have P.E. 

~Additionally, during the cold months of the year it is important that the students bring sweatpants and a sweatshirt. We will go outside!

~ All books are to be put in school locker and not brought down to class.
