• Ms. Kroyer’s Physical Education Class

     

    Dear Parents and Students:

     

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year, and welcome to my class!  This letter contains the essentials to our program while we are in distance learning mode.  If you need to reach me at any time please email me at kristine.kroyer@sausdlearns.net and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.  I would strongly recommend that parents check their student’s progress in my Google Classroom and on Aeries.  Grades should be posted on a weekly basis.

     

    The Process

    For distance learning, we will be using Google Classroom for all assignments and attendance.  We will be using Zoom for our daily lessons and workouts.  I will be using the California Physical Education Framework as my main curriculum guide for all distance learning instruction.

    Attendance

    Students will be required to fill out a Daily Attendance each day during their Physical Education period in order to be marked present.  Students need to be on time to the Zoom meeting.  The Zoom link will be posted in our Google Classroom.

    While in the Zoom, students need to have their first name and last name displayed, be dressed appropriately, have a safe place to learn/exercise, and keep their video on for the entire class unless instructed otherwise.  

    Assignments

    All assignments will be posted in our Google Classroom.  Most assignments will be done during class.  Students need to be sure to check our Google Classroom every day to ensure that they are current with their assignments and all work that has been posted.  There will be a variety of assignments from workouts (exercise), classwork, quizzes and other fun and exciting assignments.  Each assignment will be assigned a point value.

    All in class assignments/workouts will be due by the end of the period on the day they are assigned.  Exceptions can be made for injury, illness or an excused absence if deemed necessary.

    Illness, Injury, Internet/Computer Problems

    If your student is sick or injured, please email me as soon as possible so I can give them an alternative assignment.  Alternative assignments will be graded and turn-in deadlines can be adjusted to accommodate their illness or injury if needed.  If your student is experiencing internet or computer problems please email me so I can modify the due date of the assignment if needed.

     

    Grading

    All grades will be posted in my Google Classroom and in Aeries.  Grades should be updated on a weekly basis.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding grades please email me.. The grading scale is as follows:

    Academic Grading Scale

    A 90-100

    B 89-80

    C 79-68

    D 67-55

    F 54 and below

     

    Citizenship

    All students should receive an “O” in citizenship unless they are very disruptive during our Zoom meetings.  If the problem continues, their citizenship grade will be adjusted accordingly.

     

    Finally, I realize that starting out the new school year in distance learning mode is going to be extremely challenging at times.  I want to make this class as stress free as possible for everyone.  If you or your student is having any problems with anything that is happening in class, please, please let me know so I can help.  You can reach me at kristine.kroyer@sausdlearns.net any time.  My goal this year is to keep your kids physically active and engaged throughout this challenging time, but also have some fun.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Kristine Kroyer
