STMS Health & Fitness Syllabus

Teacher: Pete Smith   

About this class

Welcome to the Summit Trail Middle School Health & Fitness program.  Our mission is to provide the opportunities for each student to improve their physical fitness, foster an appreciation for the value of exercise and an understanding of health related concepts.  The goal is to lay the foundation for students to live a healthy and active lifestyle.


Assisting students in establishing lifelong habits of reliability and promptness is an instructional objective of this particular course. Progress toward this goal will be measured, at least in part, by tracking student attendance. Therefore, a student’s grade in this class may be adversely affected due to tardiness or absence.

Participation is essential for H & F grade. In order to receive credit one must be actively involved in all class activities, such as attending scheduled zoom/google classes, fitness/health activities, and fitness/health assessments.  These activities are essential for a positive learning experience for all students while learning remotely.

Make-up Option

Points lost from an absence can be made up before each quarter ends.  Communication between teacher and student is important if problems arise.  Students will be limited to three (3) make ups per quarter unless other arrangements have been made between the teacher and the student.  This policy is subject to change.

Health & Fitness make-up procedure includes

  • View missed class slideshow (powerpoint)
  • Complete and submit Google Form to your teacher in Google Classroom

Grading System

This course will function on a total point system

  • Participation points will be earned daily in a variety of ways; activity log, discussion boards, participation in live sessions.
  • Other weekly assignments, quizzes, tests and projects will be assigned
  • Points to be determined per assignments



Please communicate with me in a timely manner.  We are all learning how to navigate school in an online setting, and the only way to do this successfully is by communicating in a timely and respectful manner. Do not hesitate to ask for help!
