Physical Education 2015/16
To: All Students and Parents
From: Coach Mitchell & Coach White
Welcome to the gym – where fitness is fun! Our overall objective is for children to learn lifetime fitness; for exercise and healthy eating habits to become an enjoyable experience for the rest of their lives. We offer a broad-based curriculum that encompasses social, emotional and physical health through movement, lifetime-based activities, cooperative games, sports and health lessons. Grades are not given in our gym since our goal is for every child to develop life-long healthy habits.
Our motto is HAVE FUN - GET FIT!
In order to accomplish these goals we ask that you follow these guidelines:
The Bailey Station Discipline Policy is also used in Physical Education. Only a behavior grade is given in PE. All students begin with an “S,” and will earn an “E” if they do not get a pink slip during the nine weeks. Students are always given an opportunity or guided to making a better decision, with or without our assistance. We strive to help students make wise decisions by talking with them, allowing them a short time out to rethink a decision, working with the classroom teacher, or calling the parent to discuss the student’s choices. If a student “signs the book” a pink slip will be written and the classroom teacher will be informed. The student should discuss the behavior with a parent and return the signed pink slip the next day. This warrants a drop in their behavior grade. Signing the Bailey Station Discipline Policy assures us you have also discussed Physical Education expectations with your student.
We are happy and blessed to have your children and to teach in such an outstanding school and school system. We are passionate about being healthy! We both strive to model healthy living to our students and families. As parents you can do your part to promote physical activity and healthy habits as a family. Together, we can all help our students get the much-needed exercise and nutritious foods they need to be healthy and assure academic success!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Please accept out heartfelt thanks for the gift cards, presents, and meaningful notes we received during Teacher Appreciate Week. We were over-whelmed by the love and appreciate shown to us. We are thankful to have students who come from homes that teach children to be gracious and giving.
Students often hand us cards or gifts in the hallway, when we are on duty, going to lunch, or elsewhere in the school. Others leave items on our desks when we are not in the PE office. Sometimes the gift has no name; sometimes we do not even know who gave it to us. We hope you know that we are very grateful for all gifts! We thank each class individually as they come to the gym and do our best to acknowledge each student, always asking them to thank their parents as well.It is truly a blessing to be at Bailey Station where parents uphold the values of appreciation and giving, and are passing this on to their children. It is a joy to come to work – well, should we say – to play?
