Physical Education is the name of the course that places emphasis on movement, sports (team and individual) and living a healthy lifestyle. When students enter the class they are expected to be prepared and ready to participate and learn. Faculty members will take the students to and from class, which will take place in Purcell Marian’s Gymnasium.

Announcements:


EVERYONE WILL PARTICIPATE EVERYDAY. EVERYONE IS EXPECTED TO HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE.


Students must be appropriately dressed for class on their assigned P.E. day. Uniform includes:

P.E. Uniform Shirt or Sweatshirt
P.E. Uniform Shorts or Sweatpants
Athletic Shoes

A student may have parts of class modified for medical reasons, with a note (containing a date and phone number) from a parent for up to 3 days. After 3 days, a physician’s note is required. EVERYONE WILL PARTICIPATE EVERYDAY. I will have other work for students to complete that cannot participate in physical activity for any reason.

LABEL EVERYTHING: Please write your child’s name on EVERYTHING.  Your child’s items look just like everyone else’s.  Things get lost, misplaced or accidentally picked up by someone else, especially clothing: Gym clothes, sweaters, jackets, etc.


All students must show up dressed in their gym uniforms for P.E. Gym uniforms may be purchased at the front office. If assistance is needed, please contact the office at 961-1953.

All students must arrive at school already dressed for P.E. including tennis shoes. For safety reasons, closed-toed and enclosed heeled shoes are required. NO EXCEPTIONS!
I strongly recommend that students bring an extra gym uniform shirt or sweatshirt to wear after P.E. class just in case you sweat. This class requires a lot of movement and if you happen to become sweaty and do not have an extra dry gym uniform shirt or sweatshirt, you will have to wear the wet, sweaty shirt for the rest of the day.

Students need to wear the Gym Uniform to school on the days they have Gym Class

Quarter grades are based on participating in activities. There will be additional requirements such as quizzes, tests, effort, newsletters, personal achievement forms and other writing assignments that will be calculated in the final grade. A student’s overall conduct and effort in class will be taken into consideration for the final grade
