PE 20/30 Service Hours*
volunteering in the PE and Athletics programs (10%)
*Service Hours – There will be many opportunities for PE 20 and 30 students to complete the required service hours (three for PE 20 and five for PE 30). This has a positive benefit for students, school programs and the community. Members of athletic teams will be credited with half of their hours for participation in our school athletics program. Completion of service hours is compulsory.
Physical education is based on participation, and therefore attendance is essential in order to earn full credits in this course. It is the student’s responsibility to make up a missed class during open gym times, including those missed for medical reasons. Students must provide medical documentation to the teacher if necessary.
- Effort – The expectation is that students will participate with their best effort.
- Language – Our school and any facility in which we complete our activities are learning environments. Therefore, street talk (swearing) is not tolerated.
- Preparation –Always be on time, be prepared to be active, and have a change of PE clothing in your locker.
- Respect – Respect for self, others, and the environment are expected to create a safe environment for learning.
A complete change from regular school clothing is required. Any athletic T-shirt (without offensive pictures, words, or markings), shorts and/or sweatpants, and running shoes that are safe and supportive are appropriate to wear in PE. We offer Forest Lawn athletic clothing for purchase, but it is not a requirement.Note: ALL PE students must have a change of shoes for off-site activities.
All electronics (including cell phones, IPOD’s, MP3’s etc.) are not allowed in P.E. classes because of safety concerns.

Any clothing left in the lockers at semester end will be removed and kept for one week, then donated to charity if not claimed. Students should not leave valuables in their locker or unattended in the change room. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
Transportation to all off-site locations is provided by Forest Lawn school bus only. Students missing departure times are not allowed to get alternative transportation and/or drive themselves to the off-site location. They must remain at the school and follow their teachers’ directions/assignments.
We encourage physical activity outside of class time. Students who wish to use the Fitness Centre may do so by showing their ID cards to the supervising teacher. Fitness Centre hours TBA.
