THOMAS JEFFERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL PHYSICAL EDUCATION PHILOSOPHY We hope that each student here at TJMS enjoys his/her Physical Education experience. We, as teachers, strive to be the best and encourage each student to do the same. Our hope as Healthful Living Educators is to teach our students information and activities that will allow them to become active for their lifetime. As we try to make each lesson fun, we want all students to learn the following: 1- Respect 2- How to put forth his/her best effort 3-The importance of lifetime fitness activities and health 4-Good sportsmanship and honesty 5-The fundamentals of a variety of sports and activities TJMS PHYSICAL EDUCATION GRADING POLICY We use the following grading scale for PE: 1- 45% -Personal and Social Responsibility (See accompanying sheet) Some examples of this are: being on time, bringing appropriate wear, being safe with equipment and around other students, helping and encouraging others, sharing equipment, and appreciating the differences of others. 2-45% - In class skill performance This grade will be based on the quality and percentage of the daily class participation.
