Please refer to the Parent-Student handbook and Calendar 2015-2016 page 12, under DRESS CODE. Students' grade will be effected if they do not have proper shoes.

Your child’s Report Card Grades consists of two categories:
1. Cognitive Abilities/Movement Competency WEIGHT = 60%
Demonstrate understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to the learning and performance of activities.
Demonstrate competency in motor skills and movement needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
2. Responsible Behavior and Values/Lifetime Fitness WEIGHT = 40%
Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical settings.
Establishment of “regular participation” in meaningful physical activity.
If your child needs to be excused from PE, please send in a doctor's note, so that I may attach it to their file. This will excuse them from participating in PE and therefore, will not affect their grade.
