4th to 8th 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 upper grade levels, 4th through 8th, will be geared toward improving and advancing on their fitness levels, motor skills, learning cooperation, sportsmanship and team building, manipulative skills, hand-eye coordination, and sports rules while having fun. Some of the activities that will be covered will include:
Various sports skills development
Advanced motor movements
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 three 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!
