The Physical Education Staff is looking forward to this school year and in helping your children become physically educated. We are very proud of our Physical Education program at Tabor and the part it plays in the total high school educational experience. The aim of the Physical Education program is to develop the total fitness of young men and young women. This year, a major emphasis will be on the development of skills in the many individual and dual sports and on activities that can become valuable recreational assets that help promote total fitness in adult life. We also believe that it is the behavior of student's, which takes place after school (and at home) which has the greatest influence on a student's health and fitness we ask that the parents help us achieve our goals by offering healthy meals, promoting physical activity and modeling a healthy lifestyle. Together we can help your child become a healthy and active teen and adult.Physical Fitness ComponentsCardio-Respiratory EnduranceMuscular EnduranceFlexibilityHand-Eye CoordinationFoot-Eye CoordinationBalanceGrading Scale:Students will be given 100 a week.

Teachers will accept a note from home citing that the student is not feeling well that day and will be allowed to not participate.*For medical excuses for more than one day, students should bring a note from their doctor. The student should still be prepared to be in their PE uniform.*The only exclusion to dressing for PE might be if a student has a physical disability that would preclude him or her to get dressed. For example, a cast on an arm or leg, or an injury that makes it difficult to change into their PE uniform.PE LOCKERSThe PE staff is concerned that student's belongings are safe and secure at school. We are asking for the cooperation of students in following locker instructions so that losses and theft can be prevented. While the staff will attempt to prevent loss of clothing or other valuables while in the PE locker, all losses become the responsibility of the students. Therefore, we suggest the following:* Never share lockers with another student.*Students should memorize their combination and be sure that no one else has the combination.*Be aware of other students who might be trying to learn your combination as you are open your locker.*Lock all valuables or money in your locker during class.*Be sure your locker is locked tightly each time your use it. Rotate the dial after each use to make sure the lock is properly secured.*Lockers should be kept neat and orderly at all times.ParentsPlease stress to your child the importance of personal responsibility for his or her own clothing and valuables. The teachers cannot assume responsibility for items that may be lost or stolen because a locker is not locked.LOCKEROOM BEHAVIOR:*NO EATING OR DRINKING IN THE LOCKER ROOM*NO RUNNING OR HORSEPLAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM*THROW PAPER TOWELS IN THE TRASH CAN*TURN WATER FAUCET OFF WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED USING THEM*FLUSH TOILETS WHEN FINISHED*DO NOT THROW OBJECTS IN THE LOCKER ROOMTeachers:Miranda HayesJamie KotaLeann MyersRay RhodesRobyn Wesselman
