Welcome to Coach D's Physical Education Page!
The mission of the Blowing Rock School Physical Education Program is to educate all students to their highest level of academic and wellness potential and to teach them the skills and knowledge necessary to lead a physically active lifestyle.
Physical Education is an integral part of the total educational process. It gives students the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and socially through the use of physical activity. Physical Education helps students achieve the skills, physical fitness, knowledge, social qualities and attitudes that will allow them to develop an optimal quality of life and well being.
The health and physical education grade will be determined by computing the grades that a student has earned in the four components that represent our program:
1. Participation > 25%
2. Preparation > 25%
3. Social Interaction > 25%
4. Physical Fitness > 25%
Preparedness: Students are expected to be dressed in appropriate athletic clothing and sneakers. Students will not be allowed to participate if they are wearing inappropiate footwear (sandals, flip flops, boots, etc). Not wearing appropriate footwear will result in a deduction of the student's P.E. grade.
Participation: The student is expected to be fully engaged in the class activity from the beginning to the culmination of each class. The quality of participation requires the student to be active and positive in nature and in no way detract from the involvement, well being and enjoyment of others.
**If a student needs to sit out of P.E. due to injury or illness...parents or guardians need to send a signed note stating why the student must sit out for that day.**
