Physical education is an activity class in which student participation is mandatory and will be evaluated throughout the semester in accordance to California State Standards. Students are encouraged to give their best effort in all activities every class period to ensure the highest grade possible.  If a student cannot participate for 1 day a note from a parent must be brought to the teacher. If a student cannot participate 2 or more days a doctor’s note must be brought to the teacher. Students excused from participation will be expected to complete an in class make up assignment to gain full credit for each day they cannot physically participate.  If the assignment is not completed it will be a zero for each day of inactivity.

 

FITNESS TESTING

Students will be tested on the 6 components of fitness as mandated by the State of California fitness Gram. To ensure their best chances at passing the fitness gram when given in the spring semester.  Students will set personal fitness gram goals, develop a strategy based upon pre-testing data, and be given ample time throughout the year to practice, and improve.

 

ACADEMIC WORK

It is important that students write, inquire, collaborate, organize, and read in ALL subject areas including Physical Education. Students will be given a variety of small in class assignments. Point value and rubrics will be announced prior to each assignment. These assignment factor into the students overall grade. So again best effort is essential.

GRADE SCALE

All students start class on day 1 with an “A” however it is the students’ responsibility to earn the point’s necessary to maintain that grade.  As their teacher, we will provide all students with the information needed to be successful, and will encourage them continually, however again it is the students’ responsibility to earn the points necessary to earn a particular grade.  Overall point totals will fall under the following grade scale for each grading period.  

 

A = 90% - 100%          

B = 80% - 89%

C = 70% - 79%

D = 60% - 69%
