We are excited to see your child here at John Q. Adams Middle School. In Physical Education Classes, we anticipate having a great year for 2016-17 school year. Some of the activities we will focus on this year will be Fitness Gram, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Kickball, etc.
Every child will be required to dress out and participate in PE class every day. The PE uniform consist of the PE Shirt and Shorts that we sell in class for $10 each or $20 for the set. Sweat Pants will be available as well for $15 each.
JPPSS standard grading scale is as follows:
F 66 and below
Students are graded on PE in the following ways:
1st and 3rd Quarters: Dressing Out, Participation and PE Skills
2nd and 4th Quarters: Dressing Out, Participation, PE Skills and Written Exam.
Dressing Out-Each student starts each quarter with a 100 Average. Each day your child elects to not dress out their grade will drop 5 points each day. Once the points are lost they cannot get them back.
Participation-Each week your child will receive a grade based solely on effort and attitude. If your child is attempting to do the activity correctly they will get graded accordingly. If your child is misbehaving or not following directions points will be deducted from their grade. Your child will receive a weekly grade of and A, C or F.
Skills-This grade is based solely on if your child has the athletic ability to perform that skill that we are doing. Skills range from throwing a football correctly using proper form, serving volleyball, shooting a basketball, etc.
Written Exam-At the end of the 2nd and 4th quarters each student will take a written exam.
