Students are required to wear Kennedy’s physical education t-shirt and black shorts or sweats. Students are expected to wear athletic shoes. Students should NOT wear jeans, leggings or jeggings. Open toed shoes, sandals and boots are prohibited and will result in the student losing participation points. Hats and beanies should not be worn inside the locker room.

All students will be issued a locker. All valuables including cell phones should be locked in the assigned locker during class. Students are encouraged to buy locks through Kennedy as the PE teachers can open these locks as necessary. Kennedy is not responsible for lost or stolen items in the locker rooms. Deodorant must be roll-on. Deodorant SPRAY is not allowed.
All PE students are expected to attend class regularly and remain in the designated P.E. area until the teacher releases the student to the next class. Students with an illness of 3 days or less, shall bring a note from home to the teacher at the beginning of class. Students with an illness or injury of more than 3 days shall bring a note from a doctor. This note is to be presented to the teacher at the beginning of class.
It is expected that each student bring a water bottle to class. This water bottle should be clearly labeled with the student’s name. The water bottle can be a store bought reusable bottle or a regular water bottle.
The majority of the student’s grade comes from daily participation in class activity. A student earns 10 points each day for fully participating in class. For each unexcused absence, the student loses 10 points. For each class that the student is not participating or causes disruptive behavior, the student may lose up to 10 points.
A student's grade is based upon the accumulation of overall participation points, skill points, and life skill points. The student receives a grade and a percentage for each grading period. The semester grade consists of adding the points earned for the grading period and dividing it by the total possible points.
A student’s grade consists of 60% participation, 20% skill, and 20% life skills. Life skills include sportsmanship, attitude in class and properly prepared for physical fitness.

A = 90% -100%
B = 80% - 89%
C = 70%-79%
