Health & P.E. Class Make-Ups

Procedures and Information

The health and physical education department has uploaded files that contains information that will assist students in making up missed physical education classes. In addition to limiting the amount of paper used by our department, this increases the availability of Sportfolios and Pedometer activities for students to complete.

Reminder...

If a student is unable to participate or misses a PE class for any reason (illness, late arrival, early dismissal, field trip, etc.), he/she will receive a grade of "5/10" for dress and "0/10" for participation that day.

Students can make-up those points by completing one of two options and submitting it to his/her teacher within 3 days of returning to school.

P.E. OPTION #1: Sportfolio

Once a student has completed the sportfolio as directed, his/her dress grade will improve to "10/10" and his/her participation grade will be based on the grade on the sportfolio.

For example:

83% sportfolio = "8/10" participation

89% sportfolio = "9/10" participation

P.E. OPTION #2: PEDOMETER ACTIVITY

1. Get a pedometer (can be signed out with Mr. Artz)

2. Accumulate 10,000 steps per PE class missed

3. Complete written summary (3 paragraphs / 5 sentences each)

Three (3) Paragraph Summary:

1. Explain why you had to make up this class

2. Explain what you did to accumulate the 10,000 steps

3. Explain the benefits of doing the steps and your personal reaction

Health Class Make-Ups

HEALTH Option:

If a student misses HEALTH class for any reason (illness, late arrival, early dismissal, field trip, etc.), he/she will receive a grade of "0/10" for participation that day.

Students can make-up those points by completing the HEALTH make-up option and submitting it to his/her teacher within 3 days of returning to school.

If a student misses a health class for any reason, they may earn their participation
points for the day by submitting a current health article along with a written summary.
Articles may be from a newspaper, magazine, Internet or other current (within one
month) source. The summary must be at least 3 paragraphs. The first paragraph is to
introduce the subject. The second paragraph is to summarize the article. The
remaining paragraph is to include your reaction to the article or subject. Failure to do
this within three health days of the absence will result in loss of 10 participation points
for the day or absence.
