Final Exam Procedures

Final exams are a requirement for every class at DHS.  In Mr. Leahy’s PE/Health classes the following will be happening/expected on final exam day.

  1. Report to class at scheduled exam time.
  2. Change into appropriate gym clothes and shoes.
  3. Participate in scheduled activities the whole time.
  4. At end of exam do a full gym locker clean out.

These requirements will be worth 15 points.

During 9th grade PE/Health classes students will have the opportunity to retake any Fitness Exam (except the 1.5 mile jog) that they missed or did poorly on the first time.

It is each individual students responsibility to check student connect ahead of time and determine if they are going to retake any test on exam day.

As a result of excessive absences and/or tardies some students will be placed on audit.  This is determined from the main office.  In order to get off of audit and receive full credit for this class the student must earn all 15 points during exam day.  9th graders must also have a 76% or better on the combined total of their fitness tests.  A retake on final exam day might help this, but again it is up to the student to request a retake on exam day.

Nearing end of Semester!

The end of the first semester is closing in on us.  This means that we are close to a final grade that will not be able to change.  Here are some ways to keep your grade from slipping and possibly boost it up up a bit…

Change for class every day

Come to a gym make-up for extra points (Wed. after school in the pool)

Complete all of the Health assignments (9th grade)

Practice hard for our last fitness test (Shuttle Run for 9th)

Last week of Marking Period!

November 12th through the 16th will be the last week of the second marking period.

4th hour girls will be swimming all week, as well as the following Monday and Tuesday.  Each day is worth 25 points!  There will be at least 5 make up/extra credit sessions in the pool to make up for lost swimming points.  More information on these days soon.

9th grade boys will be starting Volleyball this week.

Remember to change into gym shoes/clothes every day!

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Monday, October 15 and Wednesday, October 17 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM.
