    Attendance/ Tardiness

    Daily Point Deducts:

          Tardy: -3        Inappropriate Dress:  -5           No Show:  -10

    Up to 10 (excused and unexcused combined) absences may be made up per semester for daily participation points, with an alternate assignment.













    The student may select and read an article (the article must be at least two pages of reading) from a magazine, journal, or webpage that has something to do with training, health, fitness, nutrition, or sports injuries.  Then write a one page review of the article.  In the review you should describe the main points of the article, with at least three supporting details.  The review should close with a paragraph describing your personal opinion of the article:  How or why this information is valuable or not valuable how does this apply to my life, “in the real world” or other people, etc.


    • The article should come from a health, fitness, or medically driven source.  For example an article about dieting found in “People Magazine” is not an appropriate source.  Furthermore, a copy of the article must accompany the review.
    • It is due the day you return to school if you are suspended.
    • Or within two days of the absence.
    • Summarizing a sporting event or a players performance is not appropriate.
