    Your child will attend PE 3 times a week, for 45 minutes. Students will be introduced to activities related to specialty and lifetime sports, fitness, rhythmic activities, balance, agility and motor skills. 

     

    Gym expectations are:

     
    Prepare to learn
    Everyone stops on signal
    Personal Space
    Always be respectful
    Wear appropriate PE clothes and shoes
    Stay on track
     

     

                                   

    Students are given 2 grades in Physical Education. One for mastery content and the other for conduct.  These are given 4 times a year, at the end of the 9 week period.

    Conduct: There are two different types of conduct notices that can be given to a student, if warranted. The first is a redirect slip. This is given when a student needs to be redirected for minor behavior issues (i.e., talking, moving around the room, etc.). The other notification is a conduct form. This form is given to a student when they do a behavior that goes directly against our PAWS expectations (i.e., being disrespectful to the teacher or other student, damaging equipment, etc.) Given this information about the two possible conduct notices, this is the rubric for the conduct grade:

    0-1 redirect slips = O (Outstanding)

    1 conduct form or 2-3 redirect slips = S (Satisfactory)

    2+ conduct marks or 4+ redirect slips = N (Needs improvement)

    Shoes

    Physical Education time is so important to a growing child, please be sure your child can participate by having the proper clothing.  We have wood floors in the gym, and we need to do our best to keep them in great shape.  Athletic shoes are a must.  This does not include platform shoes, flip-flops, dark-soled shoes, skateboard shoes, boots, or sandals.  Shoes must a) have rubber soles, b) cover the toes, and c) have a back strap or closed back.  

    Dress for Success

    Please make sure they are wearing clothes they are able to move in.  We are up and down off the ground.  Dresses are not preferred but we do encourage shorts under them if worn.  We often tuck our shirts in.  

    Sick/Injured

    If a child is sick or injured, they will need to bring me a note from home or from a physician stating the nature of the illness or injury, and the expected date they may return to P.E.  Sick or Injured

    • Your child must have a doctor’s note or parent note to sit out of PE class.
    • A parent note is good for only one week.  After that week, we will need a doctor’s note for state documentation.
    • Per district policy, if a student sits out of PE a student will sit out of recess for safety and liability concerns.

    Health Concerns

    It is very important that I am aware of any health problems that your child may have.  Your child will be able to fully participate in P.E. but I need to know if there is a health issue of which I should be aware of.  I will work very closely with our school nurse to be sure we are meeting the health needs of your child.  If necessary, please email me describing any health problems I should know about.

     

    I am committed to each child being involved in the daily physical education routine.  Please send a note should your child have a physical restriction at any time.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to your Kerr Comet having a great experience in P. E.
