PHYSICAL EDUCATION COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICAL EDUCATION (1/2 CREDIT) - 1 SEMESTER - GRADES 9-12

The emphasis of Physical Education is on developing and maintaining a high level of individual fitness. It is also designed to provide a variety of activities and games that will stimulate enjoyment of team games and to develop skills for lifetime sports activities. Adaptive activities and evaluation are provided for those with physical limitations that have been documented by a medical doctor.

 
 
 
5th GRADE PHYSICAL EDUCATION
This nine (9) week course is for students to develop and maintain a level of health related fitness. The course is not centered on the development of specific athletic skills. Students will participate in a variety of activities to attain a personal level of health fitness, to include cardiovascular exercises, competitive events and swimming
Grading Scale
Physical Education is not a weighted course.  I use the grading scale approved by the school district:

 100-98 = A+               97-93 = A               92-90 = A-

  89-87 = B+                86-83 = B               82-80 = B-
