Epiphany Physical Education

The physical education curriculum at Epiphany School is fitness based and has as its goal to produce physically literate individuals. This curriculum is guided by the Minnesota 2018 K-12 Academic Standards in Physical Education which are as follows:

The student will:

1. Demonstrate competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.
2. Apply knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics to movement and performance.
3. Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.
4. Exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.
5. Recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction.

In physical education, grades are determined on the following criteria:

1. Participation: Students are expected to participate with 100% effort level in every class activity each class period.

  **If there are special circumstances (injury, illness, etc.), students should bring a parent or doctor’s note to class explaining these circumstances.

2. Conduct/Behavior: Students are expected to follow school rules as well as the rules of the gymnasium (be respectful, be kind, be safe, follow directions, demonstrate sportsmanship).

3. Preparation: Students are expected to come to class prepared with proper PE uniforms (grades 6-8) and proper tennis shoes (all grades).

4. Knowledge/Content:  Students are expected to learn and use the content/concepts taught each class period.

8th Grade = Learn and apply the five health-related fitness components (Aerobic Endurance, Body Composition, Flexibility, Muscular Endurance and Muscular Strength)

7th Grade = Learn and apply the six skill-related fitness components (agility, balance, coordination, power, reaction time, and speed)

6th Grade = Learn and apply the FITT formula to class activities) (Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type)

5th Grade = Learn and know the muscles of the lower body and be able to explain which muscles are working during activities.

4th Grade = Learn and know the muscles of the upper body,  and be able to explain which muscles are working during activities.

Middle school students will be given the opportunity to earn 10 points per day (Five points for participation and coming to class prepared to learn, and five points for conduct/behavior.). Students will also be given concept/content assessments once per month. Grades will be updated every two weeks so as to check your student’s progress.

Grades K-5 will be given the opportunity to earn 5 points per day and are evaluated on conduct/behavior, participation, being prepared to learn, and understanding class concepts.

The physical education program at Epiphany School will provide a developmentally appropriate and physically challenging program that will advance the knowledge, confidence, skills and motivation needed to engage in lifelong physical activities.
