• 7th/ 8th Grade Physical Education

    2016-2017

    Welcome to PE!! We are happy to have your child in our class!!

    PE will be a yearlong course.  Objectives this year consist of identifying and describing benefits of regular physical activity and making fitness goals and working toward those goals.

    PE Grading Policy:

    50% of total grade: PE based on participation

    50% of total grade: Dressing out and Skills Assessments

     

    PE Activities:

    We are going to participate in a wide variety of activities during the year.  Some of the scheduled activities include:  Volleyball, football, kickball, floor hockey, soccer, basketball, cooperative games, track, tennis and others…

     

    Supplies Needed:

    Each student will need to purchase a PE uniform through the BMS Boys or Girls Physical Education Departments.  This uniform consists of an Eagle PE shirt (with last name on back) and a pair of royal blue shorts (with a 6 inch inseam)…Uniforms may be purchased for $20 during the first week of school. In addition your child will need tennis shoes (shoes that have laces, are tied and are unmarking) and socks each day.  If your child already has a PE uniform from a previous year, a new uniform does not need to be purchased.

    Excuse from  PE Participation

    For a student to be excused from participation he/she must bring a note from their parent/guardian stating why activity should be limited or avoided.  Their excuse will be honored for a maximum of 3 days if requested (the number of days, maximum of three, must be stated on note).  Anything over 3 days will require a doctor’s excuse.  THE STUDENT MUST STILL DRESS OUT EVEN THOUGH AN EXCUSED NOTE IS PROVIDED.  An alternate assignment will be provided.

     

    The note must include:

    Student’s Name

    Date or dates to be excused

    Reason

    Phone Number

    Parent, guardian or physician’s signature

     

    Locker/Locks

    Students will be assigned a locker and a combination lock for their clothes.  The combination lock must be returned at the end of the course.  If the lock is lost, the student must pay a $6.00 fine.  It is a student’s responsibility to secure their belongings in their lockers! 

    BYOD:

    GISD has moved into the Bring Your Own Device program we want to make sure all student property is protected while in PE.  Devices will not be used during PE class.  We would prefer students not bring devices into the locker room.  If a student must bring in their device, then it must be turned off and it is the student’s responsibility to secure it in their locker.  The coaching staff and school are not responsible for items left unlocked.

     

     

    We are looking forward to a wonderful year!  Please feel free to contact us for any reason.
