Friendship Physical Education Outline 2019-2020
Physical Education is a mandated class in middle school and in high school. Passing four years of high school physical education is necessary to graduate. This outline is to explain the grading and policies of FCS middle/high school physical education. This class should be fun and informative but it is up to the student as to what grade they earn each and every day!
60% - Participation-Student changes for PE, puts forth their best effort, and demonstrates knowledge, skills, team play, character, positive attitude and sportsmanship in class
15%- Fitness Test- there will be 4 times we do the fitness test through the year. each time students will be graded upon their effort and growth from the previous test.15%- Unit Tests- at the end of most of the units there will be a unit test along with a mid term and final test5%- Character- This is based on how the student acted through out classes, in the hallways befroe and after class, in the locker room, and for substitutes3%- Other assignments- through out the year there will be homework assignments given that deal with the unit of focus at that time2%- Progress Reports- twice a quarter students will recieve a progress report on how they are doing. If this is signed and returned they will recieve credit
- Students will be in charge of providing their own PE clothing (shorts, shoes, T-shirt). If they would like a PE uniform they must request one, if they forget their clothing for that day a uniform is available but must be requested prior to the teacher getting to the gymnasium.
- Proper footwear. Shoes that tie and that are tied in such a way that they remain on his/her feet throughout class. Failure to do so is a safety risk and will be considered unprepared for class.
- Any jewelry that could be a safety risk must be removed. Earrings must be studs or small hoops. Any facial piercing that is not a stud must be covered or taken out. Rings and necklaces are not to be worn during class.
- No gum.
- No swearing or profane language. Use of such language will be considered unsportsmanlike and be reflected in the Champion of Character grade.
- Locks to lock up clothing/personal items in gym lockers during class.(can purchase for 4$ and if returned the 4$ will be reimbursed)
- Personal hygiene products such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, towel for shower, which are available after each Physical Education class.
