Course Description & Expectations
Welcome to 7th grade PE. In PE we are here to stress the fundamentals of various sports including but not limited to football, basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, running, volleyball, golf, and weightlifting. Students will explore different sports and progress their learning with those sports weekly. Students will explore the sport for 4 days with assessments coming at the end of the week. Students are required to dress out for PE in the recommended attire: black shorts and white shirts. Please make sure your child has the proper clothes that are loose fitting and athletic shoes that provide comfort and safety for your child. If student fails to dress out that will impact the student's grade on a daily basis. ALL PE students must dress out. A FITNESS GRAM will be tested around February to check on students progress and health, as students in EISD are tracked from 3rd grade all through 12th grade in PE. Students will also be exposed to Health and Fitness, to help out with healthy eating habits. I stress Fitness greatly and here at Edgewood, we want our children to become lifelong fitness participants, which is why we are stressing the LIFELONG Sports (spots you can play after you have completed your schooling. These are Golf, Tennis, Long Distance Running, and Weightlifting. I look forward to having your child in my class for the 2015-2016 school year here at Gus Garcia. GO CHARGERS!!!!!
