Welcome to Coach Thornton's Physical Education
and Health class
I currently teach 6th-12th grade Physical Education, High School Health Education, and First Responders. I am the coach for the Varisty Lady Rockets Basketball Team and Girl's Track Team. I believe that all student's need to learn healthy lifestyles and life skills. It is also important for students to be taught good sportsmanship and teamwork. All students (6th-12th grade) are required to Dress and Participate everyday to earn their grade. The correct uniform consists of Grey Shirt, Purple Shorts, and Tennis Shoes.
Parents: If you would like to discuss your child's progress in my class, please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Illnesses: I understand that as flu season arises, there will be times that your child may not feel well and may not be able to participate in Physical Education. Your child will be excused for 1 day without a doctor's excuse. (This cannot be used on a weekly basis). If they are unable to participate for more than a day, they will need to bring in an excuse so their grade will not be affected.
Extended Circumstances: If your child will not be able to participate due to an injury, they will be given a written assignment that will be completed in each Physical Education class period for them to acquire their points. If your child fails to complete the assignment, then a non passing grade will be issued.
