Mission Statement

The mission of the Physical Education department at Citrus Hills Intermediate School (CHIS) is to provide the student with a quality education aligned with the California Physical Education Standards. Students will acquire the knowledge and capabilities to pursue life long activity and the importance of being healthy and fit through movement education.  Students will have experiences in the areas of: individual, dual, and  team sports , fitness,  health, and rhythms, to enhance individual motivation, self-esteem, and educational success

ACTIVITIES

In addition to a variety of activities, all classes will participate in the fitness lab, a Health unit covering nutrition, fitness components, the Prudential Fitnessgram test (required by the State of California), child lures, bullying curriculum, and once a week participate in a cardiovascular endurance program. Every student at Citrus Hills will be participating in an on going fitness conditioning program. The major emphasis of the fitness program is to improve and maintain optimal levels of all fitness components including: aerobic endurance, body composition, flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance. Students will develop a desire to establish lifelong fitness habits.

GRADING POLICY       

Students’ grades are computed on a percentage/point system.  Emphasis may be placed on participation, fitness improvement, written assignments/exams, and skill assessment.

Grading criteria for the department may vary for each teacher.

 

PARTICIPATION

Absent students are to make up missing grade points for the amount of days missed. Students may complete a written assignment. They will be asked to turn in the assignment within the same period of time they were absent. If an absence occurs on an aerobic endurance or test day they MUST make up that activity within one week of time or get a different assignment from their teacher. It is the students responsibility to make up any missed assignments.

Points are deducted for the following occurrences during the daily activities of class participation.

Tardy, Loaner, Gum, Lack of Effort, Poor Sportsmanship, Dress Code Violation  (Sagging, not wearing the correct shoes, shoes not laced correctly, street clothes under PE attire)

Extra Credit Points can be earned at the discretion of each teacher.
