General PE Info.
Our PE curriculum is basically broken down into 15-18 day units. After the 15-18 days the students switch to another unit. Students participate in PE everyday and are required to change into a PE uniform and gym shoes everyday. They also have a locker to store their clothes in. Uniforms and locks will be sold at the beginning of the school year. The locks used need to be purchased through Brooks. If students need to replace any of these items they will need to come before school to replace them. Uniform Price: New shirts and new shorts $7.00, New Sweat pants $12.00, older style uniforms(new) shirts and shorts $3.00. Lock Price: New $5.00 and used $2.00. Once the locks are purchased they belong to the student. They can keep them for as long as they want. If your child comes home and tells you that their lockers were broken into and their uniform stolen please contact me. What has usually happened is that the student has left their lock off of their locker and their clothes have been picked up by a teacher. Students are graded on sportsmanship, participation, effort and being prepared. There are also one or two tests given a trimester.
The units that will be covered in this trimester are create a game, volleyball, dance and fitness. In volleyball we will be improving volleyball skills, game rules/play and team work. Our create a game unit will consist of students in small groups making up their own game and teaching this to our class. We will have one week of dance this trimester also. A number of partner and group dances will be covered. In our fitness unit we will be covering a number of different exercises: weight training, yoga, pilates, fitness circuits and cardio workouts. We will also be taking a written test in the fitness unit. Handouts will be given in class.
Get a sports physical before the start of next year.
Practices: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 7:15 am. If there is a game we will not practice that day.
Wednesdays are from 3:30-4:45
