Our mission as College Park Physical Educators shall be to promote the enrichment, understanding, and appreciation of lifelong physical activity. We strive to provide a fun, healthy, and safe environment where students are introduced to a variety of activities and games, while existing student skills and abilities are enhanced and reinforced. We hope to instill the desire for self-improvement, scholastic excellence, and the cultivation of civic responsibility. Students should depart from their physical education experience at College Park, most importantly having enjoyed themselves. In the process they should have gained knowledge of our curriculum, acquired self-esteem, established healthy lifestyle habits, and learned the value of hard work.
Physical Education is the practice, study, and knowledge of human movement that results in lifelong appreciation and practice of fitness, wellness, and physical activity. No other area of the curriculum is designed to help children learn motor and lifetime activity skills. This makes Physical Education a necessary and important component of the total school curriculum.
All students are expected to come to class dressed and ready for Physical Education. Students not dressed appropriately are not prepared for class. Students are responsible for locking their belongings in their assigned PE locker.
College Park Physical Education uniform recommended. Plain white, grey, purple or black shorts and shirt are required. Sweats brought from home must be solid gray, purple, or black. The student’s last name and first initial should be printed legibly and visibly on their PE attire at chest level. There will be no altering of the PE uniform. Other writing, drawings or logos on physical education attire will result in the uniform not being acceptable for class. Any attire that violates the College Park dress code will not be accepted.
●Athletic shoes are to be LACED or VELCROED CLOSED. NO HIKING BOOTS, SLIP ONS (Vans), PLATFORM SHOES, FLIP FLOPS, OR BOOT-LIKE SHOES ARE TO BE WORN. Shoes MUST be securely tied to the feet. Socks must be worn.
●Shorts are to be worn around the waist. Sagging shorts below the waist for style and fashion will result in being marked not dressed/not prepared for class.
STUDENT POINTS AND GRADING:
Preparedness, participation, acceptable behavior and adherence to safety protocols in all class activities are a prerequisite to earn credit in Physical Education.
Physical education is graded on traditional A through F Scale.

EXCUSED MEDICALS, ABSENCES AND MAKE UP WORK:
Physical Education is a participation-based class, and regular attendance is critical for success. If a student is unable to participate in physical education for a medical or legally excused reason, the teacher must have a note from their parent or guardian for each affected class session. After one week (four consecutive class sessions) with a parent note, a doctor’s note will be required. Students must still dress in PE attire for make up work to be an option. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain makeup work. Students are allotted a maximum of 5 written make up assignments per semester. Any absence/medical make up after 5 will be administered at teacher’s discretion. Make up work must be submitted by student to PE teacher within two weeks of students return to class. Unexcused/Truant absences and non-participation will receive no credit for the day and no make up work will be accepted!
