opportunity to explain the main purpose of our physical education program. The
main emphasis of middle school education will be on motor skill development, interactive behavior, and health-enhancing
physical activity using the guidelines set up in the Alabama Course of
study. Our program promotes successful
participation in a variety of activities, introducing competitive
opportunities when appropriate. Through which participation in physical education
students will learn the skill and develop the knowledge and attitudes that lead
to enjoyment of physical activity and fitness for a lifetime.
Daily grades of 10 points will be earned each
day for participation, effort, and dressing out for in class activities.
points will come from skills tests, written tests, and completion of
class activities, and/or homework assignments.
A zero grade will be given each time a student
does not dress out or does not participate/show effort in class.
