Welcome to Ms. Miller's
EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
100% effort is required!!! Changing everyday does NOT assure a passing grade.
Participation is a MUST!
Students must change everyday into clothes not worn to school, even if on a medical.
T-shirt or sweat shirt (no tank tops)
Shorts or sweat pants (no cut-offs)
Sneakers (must have a back and regular heel – no thick heels)
Be through the double doors before the late bell and report to your squad 5 minutes after the late bell.
Report to your squad on time. Sit up straight and wait for directions.
Purchase a lock for your locker.
Use your locker during your p.e. period only.
Do NOT leave valuables on the locker room benches. Lock them up!
No eating, drinking or gum chewing.
Remain in the gym or locker room until the passing bell.
Bring an extra sweatshirt to class in case it’s cold outside
One-day excuses can be from a parent or guardian. Excessive notes will require a Dr. note.
Extended medical excuses must be from a Doctor and taken directly to the Nurse before school or during lunch period.
Medical excuses do not excuse you from changing for P.E. Everyone is required to change. This includes the swimming unit.
A student unable to participate must complete written assignments for participation credit.
Medical notes must be received prior to the end of the marking period.
Every student begins each marking period with 100 points. Points are deducted in the areas of dress/participation, sportsmanship/attitude, and quarterly exam. Ninety (90) points come from dress/participation, sportsmanship, attitude and cooperation. The remaining ten (10) points are made up of the quarterly exam. Please be aware points will not be given back, nor can a student complete an extra credit assignment.
Students will be graded on the following:
Dress and Participation.
Be dressed everyday and participation with an honest effort!
Each unprepared day will result in a 6-point deduction.
Lack of participation results in a 5-point deduction.
5 unprepared = failure of marking period.
SPORTSMANSHIP & ATTITUDE:
Display a positive attitude towards peers and teacher.
Jewelry is not permitted during class.
Chewing gum results in a 2-point deduction.
Lateness to class results in a 2-point deduction or detention.
Poor attitude or mishandling of equipment results in loss of points and/or detention/referral if warranted.
SKILL & KNOWLEDGE:
Written test/quizzes given on units, which include rules, safety, equipment, and history.
Skills testing may be included.
Quarterly tests are given each marking period and worth 10% of grade.
*** Each unprepared drops a student’s marking period grade a letter.***
Remember the grading policy has been changed. During the 1st MP a student can earn no lower than a 50. During the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th MPs a zero may be issued.
