Washingtonville High School
9th & 10th grade
students will be assigned to a 5 week swimming unit.
Students are required to change into appropriate
clothing for PE class.
Appropriate clothing is: Sneakers, shorts,
sweats, t-shirts and/or sweatshirt. Students
should dress according to the weather since many classes are held outside when
possible. No hats are allowed in the gym.
All school dress code requirements apply to P.E.
Medical Excuses: All medical excuses must
be submitted to the school nurse as soon as the medical condition begins or at
the beginning of each semester for chronic problems. The medical excuse will go into effect upon
receipt and is not retroactive. It is
your responsibility to get your medical assignment from your teacher.
It is very important that any injuries or
accidents that occur during class are brought to your teachers’ attention when
It is the student’s responsibility to safeguard
belongings in the locker room and in the gymnasium. All valuables must be locked in locker room
during every PE class. Locks will not be
provided to the students. You must
purchase your own lock. Locks should be
removed at the end of each period.
Backpacks, book bags, purses and clothing should not be left out in the
locker rooms. Personal items may not be
left in the gym during class.
IPods and cell phones should be left at home.
It is expected that all students will respect
the equipment, should not misuse or vandalize any items.
If an unprepared student does not remain with
his/her class for the entire class period, they will be charged with an
unexcused absence. Three lates to class
equal a cut and no credit.
Physical Education Options
Make-ups will be available on blue days with Mr.
Powers after school at 2:15p.m. Make-ups are not available for students who cut
class or were unprepared for class participation. PM BOCES students that need to make up a class should see their
Physical Education Teacher.
The unit will consist of four, five week long
activities that address the three Physical Education standards: Personal health
and fitness, safe and healthy environment, and resource management.
It is understood that individual students have
different learning styles and different teachers have different teaching
styles. A student will have the same
teacher and classmates for the entire semester.
Any changes to this will be dealt with on a case by case decision.
Grading procedure: each five week grade is
calculated by the following:
Participation Assessment = 50%
Skills Assessment = 25%
Assessment = 25%
in doubt about ANYTHING related to Physical Education, it is the student’s
responsibility to ASK!
