What is happening in Physical Education…

Dear Parents/Guardians,


My name is Devan McIntyre and I look forward to being your child’s Physical Education teacher for this school year.  I pledge to create maximum opportunities for students of all abilities to be successful.  If your child cannot take physical education on his/her day, I will need a note from home.  If your child must miss more than 2 times, I will need a note from the doctor.  Finally, if your child has a medical condition where I may need to alter their physical education program, please contact me at school to discuss this issue.  Make sure your child wears tennis shoes on their P.E. day!!!


Grading Policy:

K-2 receives grades as follows:

S = Superior behavior, great responsibility, seldom redirected

S- = Average behavior, redirected occasionally

N = Needs improvement, seat changes, getting along with others

U = Unsatisfactory

4-8 receives grades as follows:

These students will be graded according to six basic rules they must follow.

S = 1. Actively Participates 2. Group Cooperation 3. Prepared with Appropriate Materials 4. Listens and

Follows Directions 5. Character Counts (Fairness, Caring, Respect, Responsibility, Citizenship, and

Trustworthiness) 6. Be on time

S- = Meets most of the above expectations

N = Meets some of the above expectations

U = Meets no expectations

If a student is not following one of these rules, they will receive a mark. Each 9 weeks, students are

allowed two marks. If they receive 3 they get an S-. Four or more marks will be a N.

If a student chooses to not participate, this will result in a writing assignment. The student will also

receive a Level 1 offense.


A few things that may make your child's

PE classes more enjoyable are:


Always come to class ready to PARTICIPATE and willing to learn new game related activities or exercises BY:


(1)Bringing or wearing gym shoes on P.E. days.(See Below)

(2)Wearing appropriate clothing - be prepared to run, get on the floor and sweat!

(3)Bringing doctor's note or written excuse if unable to participate


Here is a visual of shoes that are NOT appropriate for gym:
