Student Choice -Students will be given a list of games to choose from and play during the last few weeks of school Evaluation Formal, objective evaluation of the motor skills learned as well as a knowledge of the rules and strategies will be conducted at the end of each marking period. Students will be evaluated subjectively throughout the year on the quality of their class participation. Together, these two types of evaluation will reflect the progress, achievement, and improvement of each student. In addition, there will be an assessment of cardiovascular fitness three times a year. Skills tests 20% Daily (dressing out) 30% Class participation (quality) 50% What to wear Students must wear their own Bishop McGuinness P.E. uniform as well as athletic socks, athletic shoes with non-marking soles, and proper undergarments. Failure to wear the P.E. uniform will result in a loss of points for that day. In cooler weather, Bishop sweatshirts and/or Bishop warm- up suits may be worn. All clothing should be clean, in good condition, and loose-fitting (but properly sized) to allow for freedom of movement during class.

Lockers must be locked during the class period to prevent theft. Students may not share lockers. Jewelry and watches should not be worn to class. P.E. clothes should be taken home at the end of each week to be laundered. Dressing out Students are required to dress out and actively participate each day. Failure to do so will result in a zero for the daily grade. If a student is injured or ill, a note from the parent or doctor must be presented to the teacher before class in order for the student to be excused from participating in class that day. In such a case, the student will still be expected to take part in class by observing and listening or assisting the teacher. Doing homework or studying for other subjects is not allowed. Class Procedure Students will be expected to immediately get dressed for class and remain in the locker room hallway until the teacher comes to get them. Classes will jog 2 laps at the start and close of each class in order to promote lifelong fitness. Students will be dismissed with time to get dressed into their school clothes. Once they have changed, they will wait in the locker room hallway until the class bell rings. Standards and Expectations P.E. is about participation, not competition! It is not intended to develop varsity-level athletes, but to give each student an appreciation of popular team sports and to develop basic psychomotor skills. Therefore, it is essential that all students be prepared to dress out and to actively participate each day. Showing an enthusiastic attitude about learning new skills and improving existing ones will certainly aid in the enjoyment of the course. In order to make this co-ed physical education course fun for everyone, students must also understand others physical capabilities and/or limitations. Being in a gymnasium or on a field is much different than being in a classroom. It is still very important that certain procedures be followed in such a free and open space. To assure a safe environment, students must always follow guidelines for the proper use and care of equipment and facilities. Students are not to begin any activity until under the supervision of the teacher. Failure to follow instructions or to cooperate with others will result in that student being dismissed from the class period and receiving a zero on the daily grade. We hope that this course will be a fun and exciting experience for all students and that they will develop an appreciation for physical activity in their daily lives.
