Paul Revere Middle School - Physical Education Syllabus
To contact your teacher, please message them through Schoology.

Please make sure both student and parent/guardian read the following information, then complete and submit the form below by the due date.

MISSION:
The mission of the Physical Education Department at Paul Revere is to enable students to engage in a variety of physical activities, incorporating skills and knowledge that will lead to a lifetime of fitness. We also aim to create an environment which develops social awareness such as citizenship, sportsmanship, and self-respect.

Everyone, no matter what age, can benefit from regular exercise. Kids who are active will:
● have stronger muscles and bones
● have a leaner body because exercise helps control body fat
● be less likely to become overweight
● decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
● possibly lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels
● have a better outlook on life
Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are able to handle physical and emotional challenges better - from running to catching a bus to studying for a test. Good fitness habits, started young, will carry over into adulthood and lead to an enriched lifestyle. It is our intent to give your child the opportunities to increase health and wellness in a safe environment.

ACTIVITIES:
Our program at Paul Revere meets national and state standards for physical education. Students will participate in group activities such as: soccer, basketball, dodge ball, and volleyball. Individual activities such as track and field, running, and fitness training will allow students to focus on personal achievement.
● Sports/Unit Activities will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays. Units average 5 weeks long. Each unit period, students will engage in a different sport/activity. The focus is to enhance students' skill level, promote teamwork and cooperation, and encourage sportsmanship through various sports and fitness activities.
● Run Days will be held weekly, either on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Students will run one mile or more every week. Runs will be timed and recorded to mark performance and improvement. Missed run days must be made up. Runs are considered to be tests of a student's fitness level.
● Fitness Days will be held weekly, either on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Fitness exercises include, but are not limited to, push ups, crunches, lunges, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc.
● Flex Days will be held weekly, usually on Fridays. Flex days give students the opportunity to participate in different or preferred activities allowing students to make personal choices. These days are also used as make up for missed days/tests, which must be completed before students are given flex time.

P.E. UNIFORMS:
All students are expected to wear a P.E. uniform on a daily basis. P.E. uniforms may be purchased at the student store. The uniform consists of Paul Revere green shorts, Paul Revere gray shirt, and athletic shoes (shoes should have laces that are tied securely). The student’s first and last name are to be clearly printed in the space provided (any additional artwork is unacceptable and may result in student purchasing a new uniform). Uniforms may not be altered (cutting sleeves/neck, etc.). For their safety, students are prohibited from wearing jewelry during the P.E. period. On colder days, students are required to dress in their uniforms but may wear sweatshirts/jackets over their uniforms. Revere sweatpants may be purchased at the Student Store. ***Leggings are not acceptable.

GRADING SYSTEM (Please note, that each teacher may amend or have additional requirements for class. Please contact your teacher through Schoology if you have questions.)

A = 90 – 100%
B = 80 – 89%
C = 70 – 79%
D = 60 – 69%
F = 59% and under

Weekly Run Tests
Every week there will be a run test. It may be a mile run or other type of run. Like anything, if you hope to improve your run time, practice! (Please note, that each teacher may amend or have additional requirements for running. Please contact your teacher through Schoology if you have questions.)

Work Habit grades will be based on participation, tardies (arriving late to class or not seated in appropriate area), and non-suits (incomplete P.E. uniform).
● 2 or less non-compliances will result in an “E”.
● 3 non-compliances will result in an “S”.
● 4 or more non-compliances will result in a “U”.
Cooperation grades will be based on behavior, attitude, and listening to directions/following rules.
● 2 or less non-compliances will result in an “E”.
● 3 non-compliances will result in an “S”.
● 4 or more non-compliances will result in a “U”.
Please note, 4 or more non-compliances in Work Habits and Cooperation may result in the lowering of the letter grade.

SCHOOLOGY
It is important for students and parents to keep track of progress in Schoology, which will be updated weekly. Ultimately it is the student's responsibility as middle school is a time for them to learn skills such as accountability, communication, and more. Please also message with your teacher directly through Schoology.

COMMUNITY SERVICE: (Due in April of the school year – specific information and date will be announced)
Community Service forms and instructions are located at PaulRevereMS.com. As a character building exercise, all students at Paul Revere Middle School are expected to perform a minimum of 5 hours of community service during the school year. The date these hours are to be completed by is to be determined. These community service hours have a great effect on your child’s final spring semester grade. Students who fail to complete service hours by the due date will see their grades drop by one letter grade and/or a U in work habits. For example, a student who was earning an “A” in P.E. but failed to complete service hours would earn a “B”. Community service must be turned in on time for credit.

Please contact your teacher in advance if you need guidance on opportunities for community service. There are multiple on campus opportunities for community service hours that may be completed during lunch or nutrition.

P.E. LOCKERS:
Each student will be issued a P.E. locker. All clothes and personal items must be locked in the student’s assigned P.E. locker. It is the student’s responsibility to protect the combination. The lockers should contain P.E. clothes, athletic shoes, folder, pencil, and deodorant (no spray/aerosol cans). There are absolutely no food or drinks allowed in the locker room. Electronic devices are also prohibited.

MEDICAL EXCUSE POLICY:
A written injury or illness excuse must be presented to the teacher AND health office as soon as possible or on the day that the student is to be excused from normal P.E. activities. Doctor notes should include the date, nature of the medical issue, the activities that the student is to be excused from, and the duration of the excuse. A student with an excuse will still be required to dress for P.E. (unless the injury prevents that) and will complete alternate assignment(s). A parent note should include the date, reason for excuse, parent signature and must be submitted to your teacher every day. Any request for excuse beyond three days will require a note from a medical doctor (MD). Parent/guardian, it is your responsibility to notify the school nurse of any medical condition (allergies, asthma, seizures, heart conditions, etc.) that could affect your child’s participation in physical education and/or any medications your child is taking.

STUDENT SELF-ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION
Per the California Education Code, which is enforced by The Los Angeles Unified School District, students may be assisted with medications or can self-carry their own medication such as an asthma inhaler if there is written authorization from the health care provider and parent/guardian. Two forms are available for this: one is for "Self-Administration" and the other is for medication to be stored in the Nurse's Office. All oral medications (such as tablets or pills) must be stored in the Nurse's Office. It is important that we are aware of every student who requires medication and that the proper documents are on file in the Nurse's Office. This is required at the beginning of every school year. We want to keep your child safe. If you have any questions, please contact the Nurse at (310) 917-4887.

ALTERNATE ASSIGNMENTS/EXTRA CREDIT:
If you do not participate in PE class for any reason (injury, illness, etc.), an alternate assignment must be completed for every nonparticipation day within 7 days. Alternate assignments may be found online at your teacher's page at paulreverems.com or as per your teacher's requirements. In addition, extra credit runs may be done on Fridays as long as all other requirements have been completed.

(Please note, that each teacher may amend or have additional requirements for class. Please contact your teacher through Schoology if you have questions.) Thank you, and have a great year!
