My name is Michelle Hoxworth and your son/daughter is enrolled in my freshman Health/Physical Education class this semester. I am looking forward to an enjoyable and exciting year. It is my goal to provide all students with an educationally challenging, yet invigorating, experience while under my tutelage. In addition to teaching at CRHS, I have also coached numerous sports and seasons at the school. I currently serve as the head girls spring track and field coach and head winter track and field coach. I believe this tenure enhances my experience as well as my rapport with the students.
Physical Education is an elective course where students can select the sport/activity of their choice. Throughout the semester students have six PE elective classes. It is imperative that students dress daily in proper PE attire described in our physical education rules.
Freshman Health is a four week course which is not averaged with a student’s PE grade. In time, students will bring home a course syllabus. It will contain all the requirements needed for both students and parents to understand how the course will run. Students will occasionally be given homework which is expected to be completed the next day. If a student is absent from class, one day will be given for each day of absence to complete make-up work.
I have high expectations for all of my students. I am asking for your help to maintain these high expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure his/her work is being completed. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 856-451-9400 x321 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns during the year.

Health is only 20 days in length and DOES NOT get averaged into your physical education grade. You must be sure to keep abreast of all assignments and return them in a timely manner. If you are absent, you are responsible for any makeup work.
1. Come prepared DAILY for class. All students are to get a pocket portfolio type folder which they will bring to class every day. All your assignments, handouts, and notes will be contained in there. Folder checks will occur periodically to help ensure students are holding onto valuable information for future reference. Students should bring pencils, pens, and a notebook for class.
2. Be on time to class. Enter quietly, picking up your focus activity as you enter the door. Take your seat and begin work. If you are not in your assigned seat by the time the bell rings you will be marked late.
3. Be responsible for missed assignments/quizzes/etc. There is a folder in the classroom that contains missed work.
4. Respect EVERYONE at all times. This includes the teacher, students, guest speakers, etc. Respect the opinions and views of others in class. (DO NOT ridicule or embarrass another student.)
5. BE POLITE - manners are expected! Listen to the teacher or other students who are speaking in class. Proper language is always required in school.
