    Hi Grade 8 Students and Parents,

    My name is Kendra Duncan and will be your P.E. teacher this year.  I am looking forward to helping you 

    be healthy and active!  In grade 8 our focus will be team sports but we will have units where you will set 

    goals for your personal fitness.

    Being in 8th grade comes with responsibilities, 6/7th graders look up to you.  You are expected to know  how

    to act and be a good role model for the younger students.

    • All school rules apply - BE SAFE, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE RESPECTFUL 
    • Listen politely when the teacher is giving instructions 
    • Use positive language when addressing an adult or a peer (no cussing) 
    • Work together to fix a problem (Rock, paper scissors ect.) 

    Clothes - shirts tucked in shorts with name showing

                - appropriate laced up tennis shoes 

                - loners:  3 per trimester, the fourth results in a detention 

    Grading system
