How it works?
- In order to receive 10%, you need a minimum of 5 hours/week and 20 hours per month in extra physical activity besides your regular P.E. class. The hours must be spread over a minimum of 3 days a week. In other words, your cannot use snow boarding on a Saturday for the full 5 hours of that week. Your can use that Saturday as one of your 3 days. You can include activities such as walking to school, bike riding, soccer basketball, swimming, volleyball, gardening, walking the dog, shooting hoops, gardening, shovelling snow, etc. Shopping is not considered an activity. Walking to and from Wal-Mart from downtown is considered but the actual shopping is not. You cannot include your job (cashier at Food Fair, unpacking boxes at Wal-Mart, gas jockey). If you are coaching and are an active coach (sweating it out with your players) then you can include it. Remember this is a very worthwhile program – like doing homework in physical education – and we are aiming for 100% participation.
- You may want to assign codes to the activities you do on a weekly basis (i.e. volleyball practice, hockey). You would assign different codes to activities that take a different length of time. Ex. -VBP = volleyball practice (2 hr), VBG = volleyball game (1.5hr).
- Write down the key on your calendars so your teacher understands.
- Add up the hours for each week after the equal sign and add up the total hours for the month at the bottom under the “_____”.
- All calendars are due during the first week of the next month. For example, September’s calendar is due the first week of October.
- Parents/Guardians must sign the calendar at the bottom. If parents don’t sign then the student will only receive part marks.
