Health & Physical education is geared towards teaching students how to be active and healthy for a lifetime. We focus on getting students moving through different activities and hope they will continue to be active as they go through life. Students will have the opportunity to explore health topics and promote healthy lifestyles during their health units. Each student is required by the state of Virginia to complete two years of Health and Physical Education to graduate.Grading
Physical education makes up 50% of your grade.
Each day students can earn up to 20 points (See attached rubric)
Activity: There will be a variety of activities offered throughout the year. Each activity grade is dependent upon the students’ participation, cooperation, & sportsmanship. Students will be assessed based on the standards provided in the rubric.
Health Education makes up 50% of your grade.
Your grade will come from a combination of different assessments.
Formative grades: Classwork & Activities
Summative grades: Assessments – Quizzes/Tests/Projects
Attendance in PE is critical as this is an activity based class. You must be in class participation and adhering to the standards in order to receive credit.
If a student is absent it is their responsibility to pick up missed class work/ assignments. If a student misses an assessment, they should come talk to me to make arrangements to make up.
Each student will be allowed two excused absence from PE each quarter. If a student has more than two excused absence it must be made up. Unexcused absences may not be made up.
Classes can be made up in a variety of way:
Come to any PE class to participate during a study hall (must have a pre-signed pass from me & have permission from teacher teaching that block)
Do a 1 page written assignment on the sport/activity/topic missed
Other options on a case by case basis
I look forward to great a year with you in Heath & PE – Welcome to Stone Bridge!
