Kindergarten to 3rd Grade
Welcome parents and students! My name is Kevin Yamamoto and I will be your Physical Education teacher here at Sts. Felicitas & Perpetua Catholic School.
The curriculum of Physical Education in the lower grades, K through 3rd, will be geared towards improving basic motor skills, learning cooperation, sportsmanship, manipulative skills, hand-eye coordination, and modified games while having fun. Some of the activities that will be covered will include:
Rhythm and movement
Throwing and catching
Various games and modified sports
Through these different skills, the students will have a good idea of what Physical Education is and will progress in ability through the years. Their grade will be based on participation, tests, materials, behavior, effort and uniform. If a student forgets to wear his/her uniform for five classes during a trimester, his/her grade will be lowered one letter grade. If the student misbehaves, he/she will be given two warnings and then a timeout. If an additional timeout is given, the student will not be able to participate in physical education for the remainder of the class. Non-participation is not acceptable. If the student receives three non-participation records during a trimester, their grade will be lowered one letter grade. Appropriate behavior is essential for physical education.
If your child is unable to participate due to a medical reason, it is imperative that I receive a note from the parent/guardian or doctor stating why the child cannot participate or what his/her physical restrictions are, as well as a follow-up note when he/she is allowed to return to P.E. If you are aware that your child is out-of-uniform, please send a note explaining why because this will determine whether their grade is or is not affected.
I am looking forward to a great year!
