HAMBURG MIDDLE SCHOOL
PHYSICAL EDUCATION COURSE EXPECTIONS
COURSE OVERVIEW: The development of a wide variety of sports skills and an understanding of how to maintain good health and fitness are the major goals of this course
GRADING: Each student receives a grade for each unit of study. The report cards grade is an average of the units covered during that quarter. Approximately 50% of the student’s grade is based on daily personal and social responsibility. For this reason it is essential that the student be prepared to participate with sneakers, shorts, t-shirt; and sweats (for colder days) and a positive attitude. Approximately 50% of the student’s grade is based on the daily application of practice time. Listening to directions, following directions, and full participation are emphasized in this category.
MISSED WORK: Students who miss class for any reason should see their teacher to arrange for make-up work if necessary. Medically excused students must also see their teacher for alternative activities or assignments.
