     Overview: The physical education curriculum at Valley Central High School is designed to help students recognize the importance of
     physical activity.  Students are encouraged to select a variety of activities that include fitness, lifetime activities,

     and individual and team sports.  
     

    Materials:  Students will need appropriate athletic attire: shorts/sweatpants/windpants and a t-shirt.  Sneakers- no sandals or boots.

    All clothing must allow for safe participation for all activities.
     
    There are not enough lockers for each student to keep a locker for the year, they must bring a lock daily and take home their belongings at
    the end of each class.  All valuables need to be locked up; Valley Central is not responsible for lost or stolen items. 
     

     

     

    Course Outline:

     
    Fall Units:  Fitness, Swimming (9th and 10th grade), Football, Soccer, Tennis, Floor Hockey, Team Handball, Racquetball, Yoga,
     Pickleball and Team Games.
     

    Spring Units: Ultimate Frisbee, Track & Field, Softball, Basketball, Weight Room, Badminton, Table Tennis, Golf, Lacrosse and CPR.

     

    The mile run is done once in the fall and once in the spring.  If the mile run is not completed, 7 points will be taken off the quarter average.  Students are responsible for reporting their time to their teacher after the run is completed. 

     

     Absences:  Students are not allowed to miss more than four classes of instruction per semester.  If there are more than four absences and
     they are not made up, the student does not earn his or her credit for the course. 

     

    Grading:  Grading is based on the Valley Central Grading Rubric

    Grading will be based on the Do-Now, Warm-up, participation, safety and cooperation.  Each semester, quizzes will be given and a
     final exam will be administered which is worth 20% of the semester grade.
     

     

     

    Make Ups:  There are plenty of opportunities each week to make up classes that have been missed, either because of an absence or for being unprepared.  Full credit will be given back for excused absences and partial credit will be given back for unprepared days.
