    Physical Education Rules and Grading Procedures

    Desert Sky Middle School will offer a comprehensive Physical Education program that adheres to state and district guidelines.  We believe our program will challenge each student to reach his/her highest potential and allow opportunities for success and enjoyment.

    I would like to explain a few items of importance to you and your child about our Physical Education program here at Desert Sky Middle School.

    Each student is required to dress appropriately for daily activities. We recommend that our students wear a PE uniform.  This includes a Grey t-shirt and Black athletic shorts and/or leggins.  Parents/Students will have a chance to order from the PE shop that is set up online.  BSN will be running a PE store that is accessible online to order the required PE uniform. If ordering from the PE shop is not an option, feel free to purchase a Grey t-shirt and Black athletic shorts at any local Wal-Mart, Target, or sporting goods store.  Students will be required to write their names First and Last name on their PE uniform as well.  A CHANGE OF CLOTHES WITHIN OUR UNIFORM COLORS AND WEARING SHOES THAT TIE ARE AN EXPECTATION.  Students will be sent home with our class syllabus on the first day of class with specifics regarding what to wear and not to wear regarding dress out clothing.

    Students will be issued a lock and assumes full responsibility for that lock.  A $10.00 fee is assigned to the student for any lost lock not turned in.  Students should NOT give their lock combinations to anybody.

    Parent notes to excuse a student from PE are good up to five days.  Anything longer must be a written doctor note.  A copy of the note will be submitted to the school nurse.


    Throughout the school year, students will participate in a variety of team sports, fitness concepts and activities, individual sports, cooperative activities, and Health.

    Grading is based completely on effort, participation, assessments, top 20 skills, and sportsmanship.  Students may lose points for choosing to not dress out, not participating, not following game rules and class expectations, and for not following safety guidelines.
