Course Objective:

The overall mission of Physical Education is to enable students to develop positive attitudes and behaviors towards physical fitness and lifetime sports.  Our emphasis will be on developmentally appropriate activities in order for students to become aware of specific body movements and how they are incorporated into physical activity.  As students progress through the elementary years, skills are combined and sequenced in patterns that can be applied in many lifetime activities.


Classroom Rules:

  • Once teacher invited by the teacher, students may enter and exit the gym quietly.

  • When you hear the whistle, hands on knees and eyes on teacher.

  • Students will wait till the end of an explanation to raise their hand and ask a question.

  • If there is too much talking, teacher will raise hand to ask to “Give me 5.”

1. Eyes on the speaker

2. Mouth is quiet

3. Ears are listening

4. Hands to yourself

5. Body still

  • Students must ask permission from a teacher before going anywhere outside the gym.

  • Students are asked to hold question of using the bathroom or getting a drink or water until after the directions have been given.

  • Students will need a parent note to sit out of class.  A doctor’s note must be presented for any period beyond a week. A checklist of activities that the student may take part in while recovering from the illness or injury must be complete by the doctor. 

  • Students must wear appropriate shoes (Ex: tennis shoes).

PE Expectations:

             Respect each other and equipment

             Always try your best

             Folllow directions

             Have fun!


Discipline Plan:

1st Offense-  Verbal warning.

2nd Offense- Sit out to complete “PE Reflection” and discussion with the teacher before re-entering the activity.

3rd Offense-  Talk to classroom teacher.

4th Offense-  Call home.

5th Offense-  Talk to administration. 


Reward System:

  • Verbal Praise- specific and positive

  • PBIS instated reward for a student displaying exceptional behavior during PE class. Ex: Pride Paw

  • “Fitbucks” Card- These are rewarded when the entire class displays exceptional behavior during their PE class and no one receives a warning. A class can earn only one “fitbuck” per class and it will be the class’ responsibility of holding onto it.  Once 10 “fitbucks “are earned, the class can redeem them for a class activity of their choice. The activity is voted on and the majority rules.  After a class earns 10 they start over again.
