G. Ray Bodley High School PHYSICAL EDUCATION
PE - 2 Credits Full Year course – every other day (REQUIRED for Graduation)
Physical Education is a required class for all students in public school in the State of New York. Two credits are required (.5 credits per school year) for graduation. Physical education is a class where students will develop psychomotor skills as well as learn about the necessary lifelong skills to enhance their quality of life through being physically active. Throughout physical education students will be exposed to a variety of units including individual based as well as team based. This will allow students to explore and discover activities that fit their personal levels of physical activity.
Students are expected to be in class, changed (See course materials) and ready to participate. Students will be held responsible for the classes that they miss when not in school, out sick or on a field trip. If a student knows ahead of time they are going to miss class they should speak to the teacher beforehand to arrange a time to make up the class(es). Students can ask the Physical Education Teachers for a pre-signed pass to make up missed classes during their study halls. If a student does not have a study hall they will need to speak with their PE teacher to see what other options are available. If a student chooses not to make up their missed classes it counts as a zero towards their grade.
***Extra students will not be permitted in phys. ed. class without a pre-signed pass from a physical education teacher and will be asked to return to their assigned study hall.
