Stephanie Kennedy

I am Stephanie Kennedy and this is my 27h year teaching middle school! 
I have been married for 24 years, my daughter Ryane is a Senior at ECU (ARGH!) and my daughter Jordyn is planning to pursue nursing at Cape fear Community College. We have a 5 year old Golden Doodle named Duke.
 I have coached girls basketball, girls volleyball, softball, and help lead our GOFAR program and I am currently the Athletic Director. I truly enjoy working with student athletes. I have taught Cycling and Water Aerobics at the Hartley YMCA in High Point for the last 25 years.
I am a strong proponent of fitness and finding something you love to do to help keep you active. In my 25 years of teaching I have found that students who discover a component of fitness that they enjoy are more likely to become active people for life. My goal is to make fitness fun and to help our students find a way to achieve that for themselves!
You will find our P.E,/Health Syllabus below and to the left are links to a variety of information you may need as the year progresses. Please don't hesitate to email with any questions about our program or your student.
I am looking forward to working with your student this year!

Our P.E/Health Syllabus is listed below. The basic idea is to

1. Take care of yourself and your things.

2. BE responsible for your actions.

3. Be prepared for class everyday.

This course is a part of the North Carolina Essential Standards.  The Healthy Living Curriculum is designed to promote lifelong physical activity through various activities.  That includes cooperative activities, fitness assessment, individual sports, team sports, and leisure activities.  Also, it is designed to promote a healthy lifestyle by providing accurate information and skills for students to make healthy choices in life.

Lockers and Locks:

It is recommended but not required for each student to get a locker with a lock to use in the locker room. If the student wants a locker and a lock it is their responsibility to use the locker that is assigned to them to lock up their belongings.  If anything is stolen or missing from the locker room we are not held responsible. Locks are to stay on the gym lockers at all times!  It should never leave the locker room or be placed inside of their locker.  There will be a $5.00 replacement fee at the end of the year if the lock is missing.

PE Grading:

All students begin each 9 weeks with a 100% average.  PE will represent 60% of the final grade.  25% is for dressing out and 40% is for participation.  If a student does not dress out they will receive a 60% for the day.  Additional points may be deducted for lack of poor sportsmanship and classroom behavior.  It is imperative that students dress out and participate for good hygiene, higher fitness, and skill achievement, and safety.

Health Grading:

Health will represent 35% of the final grade.  Grades will come from classwork, projects, and tests.   When students have Health they will report directly to the Health classroom with paper and pencil.  It is the student’s responsibility to request and make-up work when they are absent.
