Week of 5/30/18

Physical Education 7th & 8th grade 


We are continuing our Spikeball and Kan Jam unit starting with Spikeball.  Spikeball is rapidly growing in popularity and support with national tournaments all over the USA.  It is important to teach because it is a great way to stay active and have fun this summer. Also since Spikeball is popular at many summer time festivities such as beaches, parties or just for fun in the backyard.

Physical Education Grading:
Grading is on attendance, changing of clothes, and participation.  You are expected to participate to the best of your ability.  If you miss a Physical Education class, it is YOUR responsibility to come to me to set up a time to make it up! (You cannot participate in P.E. if you are not dressed and non-dressed days cannot be made up!)

Classes are 13 points each and grading is broken down into 3 parts:
1. Change of clothes= 2 points
2. Warm-up= 4 points
3. Participation during activity= 7 points

Physical Education Make-ups:
Make-ups can be done in the morning: 7:15-7:30, afternoons: 2:30-2:45 or academic prep periods.  
(If you are making up in the morning or afternoon, 15 minute sessions, they count as half a physical education class and you must do 2 to count for 1 physical education class.  An academic prep make-up counts as 1 full physical education class)  **If a swimming class is missed, it can only be made up with swimming**
