 The following rules will be consistently and fairly enforced during P.E. class:

 1) Listen- Looks at the person talking and quietly listen to directions.

2) Follow Directions- Students are expected to follow the directions that the teacher gives in class.

3) Hustle and Try Hard- Students are expected to participate to the best of their ability in all P.E. activities.

4) Respect Others- Treat others in a way that you would like to be treated.

5) Use Equipment Properly- Students are expected to safely use the equipment in the manner for which it was designed.

The following consequences will be enforced during P.E. class:

  1) Warning/Reminder- student is verbally warned the first time to follow classroom rules

 2) Time Out- student returns to physical activity after a few minutes in time out. 

 3) Time Out- student stays in time out until the end of class


Every student has the opportunity to earn 10 points for each P.E. class.  The 10 points are earned by participating in all class activities and exercises, exhibiting good behavior, and wearing the proper shoes and clothes for P.E.  Negative choices will result in point deductions.


Every student is expected to have the proper shoes for PE (ie. tennis shoes).  Students not wearing the proper shoes will be asked to sit out of PE and they will receive 0 points for the day.  After 3 times without shoes, one of the PE teachers will call and remind the parents to make sure their child has the correct shoes on PE days.  Basically, each student has PE every third school day.(ie. if a student has PE on Monday, the next PE day is Thursday.)

Proper clothing would include cotton clothing that allows your child to perform the necessary actions in PE to be successful. (ie running, jumping, bending) The desired clothing is shorts and a t-shirt. Girls should avoid wearing dresses, skinny jeans, and skirts on PE days.  We will start going outside after fall break so warm clothing may be needed for students who have PE in the morning.

STUDENTS with ASTHMA:  Even though it is not a requirement of the district, students that have asthma are strongly encouraged to have an inhaler at the nurse's office in case they should have problems with their breathing during PE.  The nurse will store the inhaler in her office and the student would have access to the inhaler on an as needed basis.
