Course Overview: The Analy High School physical education department is based on the premise that physical activity and participation are important for all students. Weight Training 1 offers instruction and practice in proper techniques of the development of muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility. Emphasis is placed on the safety and methods used to build, improved and maintain proper muscular fitness. Students will be introduced to a variety of resistance training methods and program designs.  Body composition and nutrition for health and fitness will also be discussed.

Note:  2 years (4 semesters) of PE credit is required to graduate

 

Student Expectations:

1.      Respect your classmates, teacher, and facilities.

2.      Follow directions

3.      Be prepared for class – dressed out

4.      No cell phones, headphones, make-up, food, drink (except water), or gum in the activity area

5.      Keep your locker and locker room clean

6.      Students should wear the PE uniform available for purchase or on a checkout basis

 

Evaluation Process – The following will be used to determine grades:

 

A.    Participation Points – each day of PE is worth 20 points. In order to receive all 20 points you must:

*     Attend class (absences can be made up during tutorial or by appointment with instructor)

*     Dress out completely in the PE uniform (grey shirt, blue shorts, and/or sweats and closed-toed tennis shoes)

*     Participate in the class activities the entire class period

B.     Written Work – PE notebook, quizzes and tests

C.     Non-dresses and partial non-dresses must be made up during tutorial          or by appointment with the instructor.

Since PE is an activity based course the class must be made up through physical activity.

If a student is absent on a Monday (50 min. class) only one tutorial (30 min) is required to make-up full points. If a student is absent on a block day (90 min class) two tutorials (60 min) is required to make-up full points.  This will help us stay in compliance with the California Educational Code that requires students to have 400 minutes of activity every 10 days.

Tutorial will consist of students dressing down and participating in a selected activity with the instructor to make up full points.

All absence make-ups must be made up by the end of the academic quarter they were absent during. All non-dress/partial non-dress, and limited participation points must be made up within a week of the day that points were lost.

D.    Grading Scale:

*     90 – 100% = A

*     80 – 89%   = B

*     70 – 79% = C

*     60 – 69% = D

*     0 – 59% = F

 

PE Uniforms:

*     It is recommended for students to purchase the AHS PE shirt, shorts, and sweats, but a checkout system is available.

*     T-shirt and shorts are $25.  Individually they are $15 each.  Sweats package is $35.  Individually they are $20 each.  If you purchase shirt, shorts, and sweats together it is $55.

*     If you forget your PE uniform, we have a loaner clothes program.  You borrow a uniform from your locker room supervisor (only 5 sets of loaners per locker room), participate in class and you will receive full credit for the day. Collateral is required to borrow a loaner.

*     Altered uniforms will result in a non-dress

*     Uniforms MUST be taken home on Thursdays/Fridays to be washed, and brought back ready for Monday.

  

Lockers:

1.      Each student is recommended to have a lock, which we rent out for the school year for $5.

2.      Do NOT share lockers; you are responsible for your own locker and your own uniform.

3.      Be sure to keep your locker locked at all times. The locker room is not always locked or supervised and anything left open or sitting on the benches is not safe. Please lock your lockers during class and after class and double check that your lock is locked.

 

Illness/Injury Policy:

If you are well enough to come to school, but feeling too ill to participate in PE class, or have an injury that prevents you from participating, you must do the following to receive credit:

*     Bring a note signed by a parent with a contact phone number

*     DRESS OUT

*     Participate to the best of your ability or through a modified activity that your PE teacher recommends.

If you have an injury that prevents you from participating longer than one week, a doctor’s note will be required.
