Martino Physical Education

The Physical Education Program Martino Junior High School is designed to meet the growing needs of our students.  Activities are planned to acquaint students with a variety of individual and team sports and lifetime activities.  We are concerned about the physical fitness level of our students and will work with them to improve that level.

The main goals of the Physical Education Program are as follows:

  1. To provide daily physical activity 

  2. To develop knowledge of the skills and rules of many individual and team sports

  3. To encourage a reasonable level of physical fitness

  4. To provide a safe and enjoyable physical education experience

Class Structure

  1. Report to gym - drop backpacks off on the stage and go to attendance spots.

Grading

Grading in PE will be divided into 3 parts:

  1. Participation = 50%

Participation is defined as taking an active role in each day’s lesson.  Students will be required to participate in daily stretches and workouts, plus a main unit of the day.  Each day’s class will be worth 5 points toward the participation grade.

  1.  Test/Quizes  = 30%

A unit test/quiz will be given at the conclusion of each sport/activity unit.  Study guides will be posted in google classroom prior to each test/quiz to assist with review.

     3. Preparedness = 20%
