|Elementary Physical Education|
Expectations for Elementary School Physical Education:
Students are graded on their attitude , behavior , effort and developmentally appropriate skill level . Physical Education is an activity class that requires active, positive participation on a daily basis. Students in class are expected to wear appropriate clothing for movement and perform the activities to the best of their ability.
Proper athletic shoes that give support and cover the entire foot must be worn. This does not include Uggs, boots, sandals or slip on shoes. We are often outside for class so students are to dress appropriately. If a student is unprepared, reading materials and written work will be given to students who are unable to participate in physical activity. Students not participating in regular class activities may be given an alternative activity (i.e. walking around the track or upper body activities) or written assignments to complete during class.
It is our philosophy as well as school policy that students well enough to come to school are well enough to participate in physical education to the best of their ability. Parents’ notes are accepted for up to one week if the child needs to be excused from class for a medical reason. A written note from a doctor or physical therapist is required if the student is going to be absent from PE class for more than one week. The student will be allowed one excused note from the school nurse per marking period.
Students are expected to participate in each class to the best of their ability. Active and cooperative participation is critical for a student to be successful. It is expected that all students will conduct themselves in a SAFE and RESPECTFUL manner. No gum chewing or jewelry! Poor behavior (including inappropriate language) will result in displinary actions.
“The Ho-Ho-Kus Public School is committed to a high standard of academic excellence in compliance with the|
core curriculum content standards in a safe and nurturing environment that will allow students to maximize their
potential and prepare them to be responsible, contributing members of a diverse society.”
