Students are expected to behave in P.E. in the same manner in which they behave in their classroom, lunch room, library, computer lab, or music class.
#1 - Listen and follow directions.
#2 - Keep ALL body parts and objects to yourself (examples include feet, ponytails, jackets, scarves, water bottles, etc.).
#3 - Respect others and the equipment.
#4 - Wear clothes appropriately (including jackets, hats, sunglasses).
#5 - Give your best effort.
#6 - Be a good sport.
If expectations are not met:
#1 - Reminder of the expectation. I counsel the student on how to inprove her/his behavior.
If the behavior or action is repeated:
#2 - Time-Out of the lesson (usually an active time-out). Students are ALWAYS invited back to P.E. after the time-out period.
If the behavior or action is still being repeated, or something happens at the very end of P.E.:
#3 - Loss of partial or whole recess. I have a conversation with the classroom teacher regarding the student.
If the behavior or action is still being repeated:
#4 - Loss of P.E. for 1 day. The student goes to the front office, possibly the principal's office. A call is made to the parent.
If the behavior or action still does not improve:
#5 - Loss of P.E. and detention. The student will not attend P.E. for several sessions, and will receive after school detention.
