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
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
