PE I Syllabus
On behalf of the Health and PE Department, we want to welcome you to Clayton High School. We look forward to working with you during the upcoming semester, and want to make you aware of our goals and expectations.
Our goal for PE students is very simple: Move the body. Students should expect to participate in physical fitness training on a daily basis. This might include basic weight training, line dancing, games, and sports. Students are expected to dress out for gym. This means that a student must wear something different from their school clothing. Five points will be deducted from student grades when they do not dress out/ participate. Appropriate attire would be tennis shoes, T-shirt, and shorts or sweatpants. Tank tops or saggy shorts will not be allowed as they are a violation of dress code. Points will also be deducted for lack of participation.
Students who do not dress out will still be required to participate in the day’s activities. If a student is injured or sick, please bring a doctor’s note explaining the condition and how long the student should be unable to participate. Otherwise, he/she will be expected to participate.
Lockers are provided for student use to secure their valuables. Students should bring a lock from home, lock up valuables during PE, and remove the lock after his/her gym class. Neither PE Teachers, nor Clayton High School, will be responsible for lost items.
Students should be prepared to participate in activities that take place outdoors. It is recommended that students are prepared with warm clothes everyday. We also recommend that students bring deodorant and a towel for after class.
We have a beautiful gymnasium and plan to use it for PE, assemblies, athletic events, etc. for a very long time. Therefore, we will not allow ANY food, drinks, or gum in the gym, locker rooms or classroom areas.
Wednesday will be our transition day from Health to Physical Education. Health students will need to bring a pen, a notebook and a great attitude.
Students are expected to be prepared for class by arriving on time and dressed ready for physical activity. Students will be required to participate in all activities, including warm-ups, aerobic/fitness activities, and individual and team sports.
Grading Scale for Health and PE students:
Final grades will be based on total points and will include the following categories:
Health- written exam
Physical Education- mile run, sit-ups, push-ups
Every JCPS parent was to fill ou the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students by Monday, Nov. 30. If you were unable to fill out the form by Nov. 30 please contact your child's school for assistance. The form was to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12.
We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
