GRADING SCALE:

We are using the same grading scale as a department:

45% participation (this includes daily activity, fitness activities, fitness testing, etc…) This is done on a weekly basis. Absences can affect this grade as this is an activity class.

45% Dress out grade (this is done on a weekly basis)

10% Written (written work, articles, programs, etc…) and PBA grade.

 

Our goal is for your student to have a great experience in physical education. We want them to learn the positive aspects of living a healthy, active lifestyle and we want to give them the knowledge and tools that will allow them to engage in it well beyond their freshman year.
