Exercise & Sports Conditioning
Our goal is to promote and educate all students a
healthy and active lifestyle which leads to lifelong fitness.
All students are required to wear a Cross Physical education uniform
everyday. This includes shorts, t-shirt, and athletic shoes. If you do not
dress out in your uniform you will have points deducted from your
grade. My goal as your teacher for this class is to make you a better person physically and emotionally.
It is imperative that you have a great attitude and give your best effort to earn an “A”.
Grading: My grading is as follows
Attendance and Dressing out (15%)
Effort and Attitude (45%)
Fitnesss Componenet (35%)
Fitness Journal/Tests (5%)
Students will be able to earn 20 points a day and 50 points on Friday.
The Fitness Run will be a weekly (Friday’s) run/jog that will build
Cardiovascular Endurance as well as strengthen your heart.
The run/jog will be 50 points if completed in specified time.
Ideally as the year goes by, time will decrease. You can earn 50 points
if completed, or 0 points if not. However, certain circumstances will
contribute to earning all your points. Example, If I see you working hard
and putting out your best effort, regardless if you finish in time, you will
earn full credit. On the other hand, if I see you not putting in
effort and walking with friends you will earn a zero.
Interval/Cross- Fit Circut Training:
Students will complete a weekly circuit training workout, which
will increase stamina, build strength and, improve flexibility.
Each student will have a fitness journal in which they write
in occassionally. This can include goals you have set, meals, exercise plans or
reflection of your performance. You will be held accountable for writing
in your journal. Failure to do so will result in loss of points.
Students will be expected to dress-out for PE everyday. They will wear the Cross Physical Education uniform and appropriate shoes for physical activity. Students that do not dress correctly will be marked down on their daily grade for not being prepared for class
Students will be expected to participate in the daily activity. This means the student is to give their best effort and work as directed during the entire instructional time and activity time. It is the PE teachers’ job and discretion to determine what “best effort” is for each student. Since this is a subjective evaluation, each student and situation will be treated separately. The only excuse for nonparticipation is a note from a parent/legal guardian/doctor explaining why the student can’t participate and when participation may be resumed.
Students will be expected to behave appropriately based on the student handbook guidelines. Deductions due to poor behavior will start upon entering the looker room and will carry through the entire class period. All students and parents should be aware that poor behavior will adversely affect their daily points.
