PAYNE PANTHERS PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Physical Education curriculum is an integral part of each student’s total learning experience. It is designed to provide opportunities for all students. Students will learn to set goals, gain knowledge on sport skills, and learn fitness concepts. This knowledge will maximize their quality of life and enhance their sense of well-being. Students will have opportunities to set personal goals, make decisions, and learn to balance the demands of daily living.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION POLICIES
In order to guarantee an excellent educational climate that each student deserves, there will be “zero” tolerance for student disruptions to classmates or teachers. All students will follow these simple rules:
RIGHTS: It is your right to…
Be treated with respect
Learn without unnecessary distractions
Receive clear directions for assignments
Treat others with respect
Be “in” the locker room when the bell rings
Listen carefully and bring necessary materials
Raise your hand without blurting outDAILY GRADING POINTS:
Dressing out in correct uniform & SHOES TIED SNUG! = 5 points (Payne PE shirt required)
Attitude / Effort = 5 points
Timed Mile Run / PACER test = 20 points
**Minus points will result from the use of foul or slang language, gum chewing, and rude behavior towards classmates or teachers.
EXCUSED STUDENTS DUE TO INJURY / ILLNESS:
Students who need to be excused from physical activity due to injury/illness must have a note from the parent/guardian, and are required to do make-up work for each missed class. If more than two class days are needed for recovery, a doctor’s note is required.
ABSENCES: EXCUSED / UNEXCUSED / SPORTS RELATED:
When class is missed, students are responsible to do make-up work. Students can exercise or write 3 summaries. It is due no later than I week before the end of the quarter. Make-up is 3 written summaries on fitness or sport articles or 60:00 minutes of cardiovascular exercise. Only 3 hours of exercise per quarter. After 3 absences, students’ makeup work is 3 written summaries per class. Every 20:00 minutes or one article that is turned in, the student will earn back 5 of the daily 15 points. (1 hour of exercise, the student will earn back all 15 of daily points). The exercise must be signed off by the parent / guardian. If a student is absent on the day of a mile run or PACER test, he / she will need to do an extra half hour of exercise signed off by their parent / guardian.
