Keys to Success:

1.   Be on time.  To class and from changing, students get 6 minutes at the beginning and      end of class to change. 

2.   Be respectful and cooperative, work to your potential.

3.       If you cannot participate, you must have a note from a medical doctor.   Alternative activity will be assigned.  The expectation is that if you are well enough to be in school, you are well enough to participate in some way in class.  We do something important and meaningful everyday.

4.       Call this course Physical Education not Gym.  Physical education is subject where the students are learners on their feet and gym is a structure of the building.

5.       Behave appropriately in the locker room.

6.       Keep your locker locked.

7.       Put your name in your uniform.
