The 2014-2015 grading policy, participation rubric, and definitions are listed below

Definitions:

         Participation in class :  A student is participating in class if they are physically moving and an active member in class. This includes enthusiastic and positive attitude toward classmates and the activity itself, and respectful toward staff and peers.

Prepared for class:  A student is prepared for class if they are wearing sneakers and have a change of clothes that are appropriate for the activity the class is doing. Students may not wear what they wore to school. Appropriate attire includes: T-shirts, sweat shirts (plain or with appropriate logos), shorts or sweatpants. Tank tops, spaghetti straps, boxers, yoga pants WILL NOT be allowed.

 Safety:  Students are not allowed to wear hats, sunglasses, Ipods, or jewelry unless authorized for medical reasons and have a note on file with the nurse for verification, or have permission from Teacher. (I.E. Ipods may be used when running the mile or working out in the weight room). Students are not allowed to eat, drink or chew gum during class due to safety reasons. Chewing of gum may result in loss of points for the day. Water is available during class time.

 Absent from class: Some absences will be excused, others will need to be made up due to the fact that Physical Education is a participatory type of class. A STUDENT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO MAKE UP ANY CLASSES THEY CHOOSE TO SIT OUT OR REFUSE TO CHANGE FOR!!!!!!
