Mr. Jeremy Thiessen

 

Congratulations to all our grade 4-8 track athletes for their efforts at this years Knights of Columbus track meets.  A complete list of top 10 finishers went home in the school newsletter.  

The first week of September we will be holding our school volleyball tryouts.  Anyone in grade 6-8 is able to try out for the school volleyball team.  Encourage your son or daughter to get involved in our school athletic program.  Our girls volleyball team were league champs this school year and we are looking to defend that title.

Have a safe and happy summer.

 

Course Expectations

Students are expected to:

  • Bring a change of clothes for physical education classes.
  • Take part in all physical education classes unless they have a note from home excusing them from      class.  If they are exempt from class they should bring study materials to class.
  • Refrain from having food or gum in the gym.
  • Exhibit sportsmanship, a positive attitude, and give maximum effort.
  • Be changed for class and be on time. 

Evaluation Policy (Grade 1 to 4)

For each reporting period the students will be evaluated as follows: participation (50%), movement skills (50%).

Grade 1 students will be given a daily mark out of 2 (based on participation and attitude) by the teacher, and are not expected to change for class.

For grade 2-4 students, there will be a daily participation and attitude score (out of 3) given by the teacher.  Students will lose 2 marks for not being properly changed for class.

Evaluation Policy - Grade 5 to 8

For each reporting period the students will be evaluated as follows: participation (40%), skills (30%), and written tests/theory (30%).

Participation scores for grade 6-8 students will be based on a daily self-assessment (mark out of 5); while skills scores will be self-assessed at various times throughout the year (mark out of 5).  The teacher reserves the right to adjust scores if it is not an honest representation of what is deserved.  A rubric outlining these assessments is below. 

For grade 5 students, there will be a daily participation and attitude score (out of 3) given by the teacher.  Students will lose 2 marks for not being properly changed for class.
