Seating Chart:

Students will sit quietly in the designated area of the gymnasium when they enter and at all times when required  to do so.  Students will not leave from that designated area unless permission is received from the teacher.  Students must obtain teacher's permission to leave the immediate area of the gymnasium, including trips to the bathroom. For safety and security it is the teacher's responsibility to be knowledgeable where a student who left the gymnasium is.

 Participation:

The Physical Education class is an activity zone of exercises and participation. Students should not expect to be an audience member. Participation is an important element of passing this class. There will be no make-up participation. Failure to give full participation will have a tremendous effect on an individual's grade. Participation includes formal lesson time as well as personal activity time where students are permitted to choose an activity 

Classroom work and homework:

Students will be expected to finish classroom assignments such as quizzes or special projects during the scheduled class period. Any classroom work not completed in class will not be assigned for homework. Projects will be due at the time specified. No late work allowed. If a student is absent--he/she can still receive full credit for the assignment if the assignment is received at the beginning of the students’ next class.

Missing quizzes and unit tests:

Students who miss quizzes or unit tests MUST contact me ASAP. * Please do not wait until the next  class--it could be a week before a student sees me again. These items may or may not be made up during class time; it will depend on what is being covered in class that next day. All legal absences--are excused. Other class lessons that a student attends without my permission on a due date will result in a zero--parent/guardian will be notified.

Missing class due to other class lesson

It is the responsibility of the student to notify me in person that he/she has a class/lesson during a scheduled P.E class. Students are responsible for all missed information and assignments they miss due to lessons; it is not considered an excuse for late (missed) work. Students should ask their classmates for notes and/or missed assignments due to a conflict with class schedules. A student may be asked to split the period in order to take a quiz and/or a graded activity; once they have completed their assignment, they will be excused to their other lesson.

Grading:

Grades are calculated by a total number of points for the quarter. Participation points will be deducted if student is not prepared for class, fails to participate  and/or behave inappropriately during class and assignments.  Acceptable absences will not count against a student who misses class activities
