Edgartown School Physical Education Department
"Those who stand for nothing will fall for everything."


Welcome to The Edgartown School's Physical Education Department


 

 

Welcome Back!    

 

                                     

                              2016- 2017

Supplies for Physical Education: sneakers, hair ties, clothing they can move in.

Please dress for success. Children should wear sneakers (support kind - nothing trendy  as high heeled sneakers are dangerous!) and clothing they can move in.  Girls should tie their hair back and out of the way.  We run, jump, dance and climb - to name just a few but the kids are really disappointed if they cannot participate due to lack of preparation!!  Junior high students are given time to change if they need to. Being prepared is key to success, leave a pair of sneakers in your locker!  Alternative assignments are used when needed. 

 

Guidelines for Success in Physical Education:

                                   Classes meet 2x a week.

Our department dedicates itself to offering appropriate educational experiences and activities.  The experiences are designed to enhance moral, intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth in the students.  Activities utilized in class are created to help students acquire self-esteem & self-discipline, encourage honesty & differences, and develop skills for personal fitness, recreational games and physical/health and well-being.

Why is Physical Education Important?

   Physical education is important because it provides students with a knowledge of how to maintain and live a healthy lifestyle. Statistics show that a physically active child will have an ADVANTAGE in learning and that an inactive child is at a disadvantage for learning.Quality physical education provides needed physical activity in the school day and that gives students an advantage for learning, and increases student achievement.

 

                                       

 

  • Proper Attire for Class

    • All students have been reminded that they must wear sneakers and socks during physical education class. This rule is for his/her own safety as well as the safety of other students. No high heels (including wedges), clogs, boots or sandals, will be permitted and the students will be asked to sit out of the fun activities for the day.
     
    If Your Child Cannot Participate...
    • All students will participate in activities scheduled unless a written reason is given. If illness or injury persists, please have a doctor write a note explaining restrictions your child has, as well as the duration of the injury or illness. We take our curriculum seriously and will use alternative assignments to help students stay current with the content if needed. Assignments could include reporting on a specific topic or current event that is researched in the library, shared with the class and posted on the information board.  This happens specifically when a student is unprepared for a number of times and begins to hinder their progress. 

     

     

    Expectations      

  • Your student's progress will be monitored on how they perform in these five categories:
     
    1. Demonstrates fundamental skills
    2. Demonstrates sportsmanship and respect for others
    3. Actively Participates 
    4. Demonstrates responsible behavior, cooperates, and follows directions
    5. Physical Education tests
