Welcome to Martino Junior High Physical Education
The Physical Education Program at the junior high school is designed to meet the growing needs of our students. Activities are planned to acquaint students with a variety of individual and team sports and lifetime activities. We are concerned about the physical fitness level of our students and will work with them to improve that level.
The main goals of the Physical Education Program are as follows:
NO DRESS POLICY - Students can rent 3 times per Trimester. $1.00 per uniform.
If you do not dress for Physical Education class you will receive:
1st no dress = 5 points off preparedness grade
2nd no dress = 10 points off preparedness grade
3rd no dress = 15 points off preparedness grade
4th no dress = 20 points off preparedness grade
Students must have a school issued lock on their locker at all times, if the lock lost and in the lock (lost and found) not claimed at the end of the week the student will lose 5 points off preparedness part of their grade.
PERMISSION TO BE EXCUSED
Students who are to be excused from gym activities for a period of one day must present a written note signed by the parent/guardian. Students to be excused for a period of time longer than the one day must present a written statement from a physician.
Students with a physician's statement on file are not required to "dress out" during the time of the excuse. Upon being released by the physician, the student should obtain a written statement from the physician or parent verifying their return to regular physical activity.
The teacher will notify parents of students with excessive excuses.
TEST RETAKE POLICY - Students have 2 class periods to talk to the teacher about a missed test (absence) or the test will go into the grade book as a 50%, until the student makes up the test.
Students that score a grade of a D or F on a test may retake the test, after they have filled out the proper paper work. Students must also review the study guide and be prepared to take the retaken test.
Reminder: NO gum or candy in the gym - Students will be written up.
