Happy New Year, Fisher Falcons! Welcome to the start of 2020. I have enjoyed working with all of your students this year, and I look forward to the start of a new decade for SJF Physical Education.
In the new year, our focus across all grade levels will be to:
- create a space for teamwork and collaboration
- strengthen the fundamental skills needed for physical well-being
- foster a positive, can-do attitude
As always, safety is our number one priority. It is important that students are held accountable for their behavior to ensure that everyone is able to learn in a safe, secure and positive learning environment.
With this in mind, the following disciplinary policies will be effective immediately for students in grades 5th-8th.
Minor infractions include (but are not limited to) not following directions, failure to stay on task, talking out of turn, etc.
First Infraction will result in a verbal warning from the teacher.
Second Infraction will result in the issuing of a demerit.
Major infractions include disrespect of any kind and any action that jeopardizes the safety of any member of the class. This includes misuse or damaging of gym material, physical contact towards another student, blatant disregard for the safety of other students. (An example of this would be throwing a ball at another student’s head)
Any major infraction will immediately result in a detention and a phone call/e-mail to the parent.
Ultimately, I believe that positive reinforcement is the best way to reward exemplary behavior. Students who meet all expectations will be rewarded with Falcon Tickets that can go toward our all-school positive behavior initiative “Super Falcons” where students are recognized monthly for exemplary behavior.
Most importantly, my hope is that students will have fun and enjoy their time in Gym Class. Through teamwork, positivity and safe behavior we can ensure a positive experience in 2020 and beyond.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me at the school office or via email at email@example.com
