Dress/Coop: 5 points daily. Students must dress and cooperate with the activity for the day. If the student uses profanity, students will lose 2 points from his cooperation for the day.

Fitness:  5 points daily. At the start of class everyday we do our fitness part of the lesson. Consist of cardio, strength training, and flexibility. Students will be given a strength program for the day with given sets and reps. Students may do their own strength program but it must me approve by me first. We concentrate on two core lifts: bench press & squat press. For cardio the students can use any of the following cardio equipment we have in the weight room or walk in the gym.

Skill/Effort: 5 points daily. Students are required to give their best effort during the activity. If students don’t give effort or participate they will lose points.

Written/Skill Test: Written Test will be given after each unit. Skill or Fitness test will be given each semester. It consists of the students running a mile, push-up test, sit & reach, shuttle run, and sit-up test, max on bench & squat.

Final Exam: Students will have a final exam each semester. The 1st semester exam is a written final over a article read in class. The 2nd semester exam covers all the activities we have done in class.

Additional Points:

Fitness Sheets: Students will have to keep a fitness folder and keep track of their strength program/ cardiovascular fitness. I check the fitness folder four times a semester for a total of 40 pts.


NO DRESS- If the student doesn’t have the appropriate clothing or shoes the student will lose all 15 points for the day. Also if the student has an unexcused absence from school they also will lose their 15 points.


Students can borrow clothes if they forgot their clothes. Minus 2 points for each article of clothes borrowed.


Excused- No-dress must be accompanied by a written, dated, and signed note from either a parent (2 per semester). If a student misses more than two consecutive classes, a signed doctors note is needed.
