Scenic Park Elementary
Physical Education

Dear Parents and Guardians,
My name is Scott Armstrong and I am one of two physical education teachers here at Scenic Park.. I am exited to work with all the students at Scenic Park and looking forward to having a great year.

My goal is to help students have a variety of ways to enjoy being physically active. Students that are active and surrounded by a positive and supportive environment will see academic, emotional and social benefits now and in the future. We will prepare and
encourage students to gain skills and be active for a lifetime.
At Scenic Park students will have PE for 45 minutes twice a week.

During the time spent with us we will be working on:
Movement concepts: hopping, skipping, jumping, running
Skill themes: Throwing, kicking, striking, catching. During the year we will use these skills to play frisbee, volleyball, baseball, soccer, ect..
Wellness concepts: These concepts are use through out the program. Healthy living including nutrition, personal safety, hygiene, body systems and sleeping patterns are some examples.

The skill theme approach provides experiences appropriate to a child’s developmental level that combine fundamental movements into more complex and specialized patterns.
These patterns lead to individual, dual and team game or dance situations. With increased mastery comes increased confidence and enjoyment. (ASD PE/Health website)

Behavior Expectations and Rubric:
# 1 Follow directions quickly
# 2 Stay in control
# 3 Make smart choices
# 4 Be a good sport
# 5 Be respectful to everyone

Stop and Think
     If a student at any time becomes dangerous to his or her fellow students, that student will need to take a break to regain composer and think about how the actions are dangerous.

Students start class with 5 points. See attached rubric.
5=O           92%
4=S+ 75%
3=S           60%
2=S-           40%
1=N          -39%

The point system is based off the rules posted in class.
The students will get one warning for any infraction without loss of points. Students who continually are breaking the rules will have points taken away and this will have a direct effect on their grade.
Absences do not count against your grade.

Dress Code:
Each child is expected to participate every day. Please help your child to remember their PE schedule and to dress accordingly. Wearing tennis shoes and clothes easy to perform movement is a must for your child’s safety and success. “No Crocs, No
Flops” Also, If your student wears a dress on PE day, please have her wear a pair of shorts/leggings.
We are looking forward to working with the students at RJ keeping a positive and safe learning environment. We appreciate you help, support and cooperation: please feel free to email or phone us at any time with questions or concerns.
