• How Your Student Will Be Graded In Physical Education
    pic  
    Every student at MacArthur will have PE twice a week for 30 minutes. I will grade in a variety of ways for each grade level.
     
    Grades 3-5 
    Participation/ Effort For Every Class Period (Ex: Proper Shoes/ Clothes, Positive Attitude During Class)
    Written Assessments On The Rules Of Each Sports Game We Play (Ex: Basketball Rules, Soccer Rules)
    Skill Assessments For Each Sport/Skill (Ex: Passing Basketball, Dribbling Soccer Ball) 
     
    Grades 1-2
    Participation/ Effort For Every Class Period (Ex: Proper Shoes/ Clothes, Positive Attitude During Class) 
    Skill Assessments For Each Sport/Skill (Ex: Passing Basketball, Dribbling Soccer Ball) 
     
    Kindergarten will not receive grades in PE. I will still assess their skills in an informal way to check for growth and knowledge in the specific skills.  
     
     
    How I Can Help My Student Prepare For PE Class: 
    It is very important for students to come dressed appropriately on the days they are attending PE class. Gym shoes that tie are preferred. Please no sandals, crocs, clogs, or boots as those will be considered inappropriate, and they will not be able to participate in class activities for the day. This will cause them to forfeit their participation points for that class period. Comfortable clothes on PE days would also help your child move freely during the activities we perform and make the class period a lot more enjoyable. Please encourage your child to be physically active outside of PE class as this too will help them perform better during class. Thank you in advance for all of the help with preparing your children for PE days as I hope all of my students will enjoy their PE class periods. 
     
    Medical Issues 
    If your child needs to be excused from PE activities for the day please write them a note or call and leave me a message stating your child's name and reason for not participating. If your child is not able to participate in PE class for any length of time due to a medical issue please have he/she bring a doctors note ASAP. Without a medical note your child will not receive participation points for the day. This may really have an impact on their grade if not addressed. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns on this topic.
