Physical Education, Health & Driver Education

Recognizing that wellness incorporates all aspects of being, the Lemont High School Physical Education Department believes that students should develop the following characteristics:
• Understanding that the core of wellness education – personal well-being and life long learning – enhances the quality of life for the individual and the community
• Commitment to growth in the physical, mental, social and emotional aspects of life
• Responsibility for their well-being and intellectual growth over a lifetime

Courses offered within the Physical Education curriculum provide resources, information, assessments and activities that empower all students with the knowledge and understanding to make informed, health-promoting decisions. The department implements a safe, supportive environment that acknowledges individuals’ similarities and differences. The department is comprised of courses in Physical Education, Health and Driver Education.

Based on their abilities and course level, students shall:
• Develop a sense of self discipline
• Assess risks, consider potential consequences, and make health-enhancing decisions
• Understand and communicate health information clearly for self-management and health promotion

Students are expected to:
• Dress in school uniform for each class to promote consistency, school pride, self discipline and hygiene (school-issued sweatpants are available at an additional cost and are the only acceptable alternative to wearing the required uniform)
• Participate to the best of their abilities in class activities
• Demonstrate sportsmanship and cooperation in class activities
• Master concepts related to activity, including knowledge of rules and objectives
• Bring their elastic heart monitor strap to class daily and understand the training benefits that a heart rate monitor affords

Grading Standards: Student grades are determined based on their performance on specific physical education activities, cardiovascular conditioning and written tests. Students are expected to put forth their best effort - regardless of ability or talent - while also working outside of class to improve their fitness scores and receiving daily grades for their participation. New tattoos or piercings are not valid medical reasons for not participating in class. All courses are applied towards students’ cumulative grade point averages.
