The RMS Physical Education Department believes that physical education is an essential part of your child’s scholastic experience. Our program’s goal is to expose students to a variety of experiences that encourage them to enjoy and value physical activity and its effect on lifelong health and well-being. Through participation in individual and group activities, alternative environment activities, cooperative games, gymnastics, and sport experiences, students will develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed. This will allow them to incorporate physical activity into regular routines and leisure pursuits in order to live an active, healthy lifestyle.

Students will be evaluated on a daily basis using a 1-2-3-4 scale., in which students will be observed based on: Preparedness, Warm-up, Effort (Listening, Attitude, Fair Play) and Active Participation

Over the years, we have experienced an influx of notes excusing student participation for minor reasons (i.e. cold, aches, pains). As a parent/guardian, please be selective when providing written excuses for your child. If a student is well enough to be at school or participating in outside physical activities ( i.e. hockey game , football practice, dance recital), they should be well enough to participate in all subject areas, including physical education. We understand injuries and illnesses are a part of life, but if rest and rehabilitation are needed, they shouldn't be
In the event that a student cannot participate in class (i.e. severe physical injury), a written note from parents or guardians, doctor or physiotherapist MUST be provided. Again, parents/guardians should communicate the extent of injury and restrictive measures in place. This can also be communicated through email or by phone (voicemail).
In the event of any major injuries (i.e. broken bone, surgery etc.) please provide a medical timeline for your child’s return to participation in physical education. Students will be provided with alternative assignments in order to meet outcomes.
