Seven days without exercise makes one WEAK!
I would like to welcome you to my Physical Education webpage. I hope the information on my site will enlighten you to what the program here at Indian Trail is all about.
My mission is to:
-promote and support healthy lifestyles;
-ensure quality units;
-meet and exceed standard requirements for Illinois;
-enhance student knowledge and skills;
-learn about and use new research and technology;
-focus on motor development and force production;
-worry about quality, rather than quantity;
-and lastly but most important===HAVE FUN!!!

Formative (assessments given throughout the quarter)=25%
Summative (assessments given at end of quarter)=75%
Assessments are based on a 5 point scale:
5 (all points achieved) = A
4.45 (-1) = B+
4 (-2) = B-
3.95 (-3) = C+
3.5 (-4) = C- Effort-If the student has no checks, they will receive “outstanding” for effort. If the student has 1 – 8 checks for behavior and/or 2 – 4 checks for no shoes, they will receive “satisfactory” for behavior. If the student has 9 or more checks for behavior and/or 5 or more checks for no shoes, they will receive “needs improvement” for effort. Students should be able to abide by the following expectations: when whistle is blown-stop, look, and listen; wear proper shoes; walk, unless otherwise stated; keep their personal self-space; be respectful.
