Water bottles are permitted during class, however, each student is responsible for ensuring that their water bottles remain out of the way during class and picked up everyday at the end of class. Water breaks at the fountains will be allowed by the teacher at designated times. Sunscreen should be applied at home or in the classroom before PE. For the safety of all students, application of sunscreen will not be permitted during class. Participation-Students are expected to participate everyday. Regular participation along with the ability to cooperate with other students on a daily basis is essential for success in physical education. Failure to participate on a regular basis will result in a loss of points.

When writing a note to excuse a child from physical education, parents should include their child's classroom teacher and grade level and why they need to sit out. A doctor's note is required for a student to miss more than 3 days without losing points.

Students will receive a "warning" each time they are not participating and if it continues, they will lose 1 point
If a student is not following the PE rules they will also get a warning. If they receive 2 warnings they will lose a point. If they get 3 warning they will lose Friday game day and be required to fill out a behavior chart during that time.
If students do not wear the correct shoes they will not be able to participate and will lose 1 point
Points will be added up at the end of each trimester.
Grading Scale is as follows:
A = 1-3 points lost A- = 4-6 points lost B+ = 7-9 points lost B =10-12 points lost B- =13-15 points lost C+ = 16-19 points lost C = 20-23 points lost C- = 24-27 points lost
Students will also be assessed throughout the year on the skills they are learning. In order to make sure students are meeting the standards, various skill assessments will take place (teacher assessments, self-assessments, peer assessments, formal and informal assessments). These assessments are done to determine if children are making progress.
