News & Notes

Getting Started:

Please join the Google Classroom for your PE block. 

Remember, you will only have PE every other day. You will have your elective class on the opposite days as we are on a rotating schedule for PE/Electives.  

The two main sources that we will be using during remote PE is Google Classroom and Zoom.

Every day that you have PE, you will begin class by logging onto your PE Google Classroom. There you will find your classes Zoom link on the Stream as well as the classwork section. Please join your Zoom meeting daily at the start of class.

We will be incorporating physical activity each day that you have PE so please wear clothing and shoes that allow you to participate comfortably.

Virtual PE grading:

Virtual PE grading will be divided into 2 categories: Participation and Assessments.
Our PE grading system here at Erwin Middle School may be slightly different than other classes you may have in that every student begins each 9 week grading period with a total of 100 points in each category. We utilize a point deduction system. Every week is worth a total of 10 points. The breakdown of points is below:
Participation = 5 points
Assessment/Checkout = 5 points
Total = 10 points

If you accomplish both categories daily then you will not have any points deducted for the week. However, if you do not accomplish one or both categories then points will be deducted from those associated categories for the week. For example: If you complete the assessment/checkout but you chose not to participate in an activity, a total of 5 points will be deducted from your grade in the participation category but you will not loose any points from the assessment/checkout category.

Here at Erwin Middle School the PE Department simply asks you to try your personal best. As long as you are participating, maintaining good class etiquette and giving your personal best effort to complete any assessments/checkouts then you will not have any points deducted.
Remember, we just ask that you give your personal best!

*Your PE grades will be on PowerSchool. Therefore, you can keep track of your PE grade via PowerSchool.
