Just to let you know that the Physical Education Fee has allowed us to purchase a pedometer for each student in the building. The students will use their pedometer during class as well as at home. We are hoping this will be a tool that will encourage Stanton students to be active in every aspect of their lives!
A Few Quick Notes On Using a Pedometer
Walking just 30 minutes a day improves all aspects of health. All chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease and asthma to name a few) are better controlled with exercise.
Be sure to wear a pedometer on waistband, right above either leg.
2,000 steps equals a mile
Daily recommendation is 10,000 steps a day
10 running steps burns 1 calorie
20 walking steps burns 1 calorie

Overall Rotation Grading
Students will be assessed on the Physical Education Standards. Students will receive an A,P,L in each area.
SHAPE America’s National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education define what a student should know and be able to do as result of a highly effective physical education program. States and local school districts across the country use the National Standards to develop or revise existing standards, frameworks and curricula.
Standard 1 – The physically literate individual demonstrates competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.
Standard 2 – The physically literate individual applies knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics related to movement and performance.
Standard 3 – The physically literate individual demonstrates the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.
Standard 4 – The physically literate individual exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.
Standard 5 – The physically literate individual recognizes the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction.
These are all standards that students must perform throughout their middle school years. All the students will be measured (graded) with these standards, which means students are graded on their own performance and individual growth. They will track this growth in the Sportfolios. The students will receive an A,P,L and receive a point value for each level achieved. This will be converted into a letter grade that they will receive on the nine week grade card.
