7th and 8th Grade Lifetime Fitness Expectations
Mr. Hawkins and Mr. Stupka
Grading: Lifetime Fitness grades will be made up of 6 areas: participation, effort, dress, tardiness, assignments, and behavior. Each student will be given 10 points each day. If one of the above requirements is not met, the student will lose points.
Grades will be calculated based on the following grading scale….
Gym Suit: Expectations for suiting out are very similar to P.E. class. Students are expected to attend and suit out everyday in the proper P.E. attire. Each student must wear their own school issued P.E. uniform. If a student fails to suit out they will lose 3 daily points. These points may not be made up. Students are responsible for providing socks and tennis shoes. Tennis shoes must fit tightly enough that they don’t come off during physical activity. Gym suits should be taken home and laundered once a week. All students will wear their shorts around their waistline with shirts tucked in. Sagging pants are against school policy and will be enforced in Lifetime Fitness class.
Jewelry: All students are expected to remove all jewelry, watches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, or anything else that is a perceived hazard to the students. Failure to do this will result in a 3-point deduction off the student’s dress points. Fitness trackers may be worn. A student will be allowed to wear a fit-bit as long as the student checks with the teacher first.
Class Participation: Students are expected to participate everyday. If a student is injured/sick, a note from a parent/doctor is required in order for the student to not participate for that day. Points for the day will be lost and the student will need to make up the day to receive the points. The same is true for absences.
Lifetime Fitness Make-up: If a student misses class for any non-school related activity, the time must be made up. Students will make up this time on their own. They will need to do a 40 minute physical activity outside of the regular school day. Athletic practices may be used. If a student exercises with an adult, the student may use that person’s minutes as part of their own. This would allow for a 20 minute workout with a parent or adult guardian to count as one 40 minute session. A form will need to be picked up by the student and brought home, a parent signature is required. All make-up classes must be completed by the end of the 9 week grading period. If a student has sustained a long-term injury or illness they will not be required to make up those days through activity and will be recorded as exempt in the grade book. A long-term injury is one in which a student is forced to miss 5 consecutive days and a doctor’s note must be on file.
