All grades will be posted in the students' "PE" class on Genesis. The Health and Workout Wednesday Genesis pages will not be used. 
Grades will consist of various assignments, such as attendance, participation, classwork, quizzes, and projects.
  • Grades are based on a total points grading system. Larger assignments, such as projects or tests, will be worth more points than smaller assignments, such as quick homework assignments. Exact point values will vary.
  • Attendence will count towards student grades, as per the school's policies this year. 
  • If a student is asked to sit out during PE due to not following safety rules, they will not receive credit for the remainder of class. Students will be provided with 2 verbal reminders/warnings prior to being asked to sit out.
  • Points will be lost for work submitted past the due date. Late work will be accepted for partial credit.
