Alternate assignments are used to fulfill PE requirements if a student is injured or ill for an extended period of time and/or cannot participate in normal PE activities. Students may also run on Flex Fridays to fulfill missing assignments. If you have alternate assignments that need to be turned in, please do so through Schoology as soon as possible.
- To avoid cramming and last minute submissions, I will accept up to two (2) alternate assignments per week.
- The last day I will accept these assignments for any semester is one week prior to the end of the semester.
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
Assignments must be typed with at least 300 words.
Make sure to include your name, PE teacher's name, PE period on the top right hand corner of your assignment. This information does not count towards the word count.
The assignment title should be the name of the article.
