*M Physical Education 1
My name is Jake Heaton and your son/daughter is enrolled in my freshman Health/Physical Education class this semester. I am looking forward to an exciting and enjoyable year. Having worked as a Physical Education teacher in England and as a soccer coach here in the United States, I am able to work with and educate students from various backgrounds and with various learning abilities. Therefore, I am confident my well-rounded background will help facilitate a fun and efficient learning environment in which all students can learn.
Physical Education is an elective course where students can select the sport/activity of their choice. Throughout the semester students will have six PE elective classes. It is imperative that students dress daily in proper PE attire described in our physical education rules.
Freshman health, Family Life I, is a four week course which is not averaged with a student’s PE grade. In time, your son/daughter will bring home the health course syllabus and class contract to be signed. I have written this contract to ensure that both students and their parents understand how this course will run. Students will occasionally be given homework which is expected to be completed for the next day. If a student is absent from class, one day will be given for each days absence to complete make-up work. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus or course, please contact me.
I have high expectations for all of my students, and for that I will not apologize. I am asking for your help to maintain these expectations by checking with your son/daughter periodically to make sure his/her work is being done. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 856-451-9400 x392 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns during the year.
