Welcome to Physical Education!
Instructor: Brandon Vincent
PE Philosophy: In order for students to get a well-rounded education and maintain a healthy lifestyle and mindset, Physical Education must be an essential part of the overall curriculum in an instructional program. Physical Education should be used to teach students to participate in different activities and sports that contain some type of physical activity. These skills and knowledge of specific activities should build on each other to hopefully engage each student to participate in physical activity for the rest of their lives. In order for Physical Education to gain the respect and support it needs to remain a vital part of a student’s education, it must be based on instruction and developing goals with achievable outcomes. Physical Education can be beneficial to a student’s cognitive and affective learning in all subject areas.
Grading: Grading at the (6-8) level of physical education will be on a letter grade basis (A,B,C,D,F) for class participation, written tests, quizzes, skill analysis, class exercises and daily classroom behavior. Grades will be weighted to represent the following; tests/quizzes 30% of grade, skill development/analysis 20% of grade, and participation 50% of grade. Grading at (K-5) level will be based on participation and skill development.
PE Uniform: Students grades 4-8 will be required to wear their SJS PE uniform during the school day on the particular day of the week they have PE class. The PE uniform will consist of a SJS t-shirt and pair of shorts for the spring and summer months and a SJS sweatshirt and sweatpants for fall and winter months. Students not dressed in the appropriate PE uniform will lose 1 point from the daily participation points.
