    Retesting:  You will be given the opportunity to retest within ten days of receiving your graded test (date and time will be determined by the teacher). It may or may not be the same as the original test. The highest test grade will be taken. However, before you can retest, you must meet the following stipulations:

     

    1. You must sign up within 3 days after the graded test has been returned. Be sure to check with the teacher if you are absent.
    2. All re-teaching assignments must be completed prior to attending the re-teaching secessions ( 3 days prior to retesting)
    3. You must take the test on the date assigned by the teacher.

     

     

    Course Requirements: The curriculum focus is on lifetime fitness and physical activity.  Students are encouraged to work together in promoting course and individual goals.  Students must dress and participate every day in workout and sport activities. You are required to keep up with your notes throughout the term in preparation for the unit tests. Attendance is also important since the majority of assignments will require active student participation.

     

    Participation/Homework/Assignments: Daily participation accounts for 80% of a student's grade. Every student is required to participate in daily activities. (80% participation, 20% dress)

     

    Dress Code: Every student is required to dress for class. Students may either bring their own clothes or use a physical education uniform (T-shirt and shorts). Each student must pay a $5.00 Physical Education fee. The money will be used for the washing of the clothes everyday by school personnel.  The student is responsible for wearing the proper shoes/footwear to class every day (tennis shoes and socks).  The student will lose points daily for not dressing properly for class.
