P.E. Grading Explanation 

We, the NCS Physical Education/Health teachers, are very proud of our program because it is both stimulating and rewarding.  In order to reap the benefits of our classes, the children must abide by all of the established rules and guidelines in addition to participating each and every class. 

 

In 1st and 2nd grades, the Participation and Sportsmanship grades are listed separately on the report card.  In the 3rd and 4th grades, students are evaluated with one grade which reflects both participation and sportsmanship. 

 

No matter which grade level, sportsmanship encompasses how the student interacts with his/her classmates, how the student deals with winning/losing, whether he/she follows game rules as well as classroom guidelines. 

 

For all grade levels, the participation grade reflects how many times the student participates during the quarter and the effort shown during the activities.  In order to participate safely, the students must wear sneakers. 

 

The following guidelines are established for the children’s safety and to promote responsibility:

 

  1.  Proper behavior is expected at all times:  listening quietly, raising hand to speak, good sportsmanship/positive attitude, showing respect for the teacher, respect for classmates and themselves, along with respecting the equipment.

 

    2. The following NEGATIVE actions affect the student’s grade:

            A. Inappropriate behavior

            B. Not participating 100% 

            C. Gum, candy or food in class,

            D. Not wearing sneakers

      • 1st and 2nd grade students earn no more than an “S = Satisfactory” after three unprepared classes and possibly an “N = Needs Improvement” or a “U = Unsatisfactory” if the student is unprepared for more than four classes and/or has issues with any of the above.
      • 3rd and 4th grade students earn no more than an “S = Satisfactory” after two unprepared classes and possibly an “N = Needs Improvement” or a “U = Unsatisfactory” if he/she sits out of four or more classes and/or has issues with any of the above.

 

     3. In case of illness or injury, students must have either a doctor's note or a note from their parent or guardian.  A parental note is good for two days only.  After two days, a doctor's note is required. 

 

We are looking forward to a great year with your child(ren).
