MAKE UP ASSIGNMENTS FOR ALL PE CLASSES:   You are allowed 2 free absence days per nine weeks- excused or unexcused- for which you will receive your daily points just as if you were in class.  After your 3rd absence a make up assignment is required to earn your points back for EACH day missed (25 points per day).  Assignments are due within 5 school days of the absence. Be sure to let me know if you are absent due to a school related function as that will not count as one of your absences.  When I receive your make up work I will change the grade for the missed day from a zero to the daily points missed.  Assignment topics are listed below:

Type a minimum half page, single spaced summary of the article that you choose. Start the summary at the top of the page, not half way down the page.  Font may be no larger than size 12.  Turn in the summary and a copy of the article to me. -OR- you may Email your summary to me and include a link to your article.
