Eating Healthy

A good balance between exercise and food intake will help you look good, feel good, and achieve excellence. In order to function properly, the body needs 50 different nutrients. Nutrients include water, proteins, fats. carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.  The energy found in food is measured by counting calories. These calories are what your body burns during exercise. To maintain your weight, you should have a balance of calories you eat (calorie intake) with the calories you burn (energy expenditure) each day. Reading the labels of the food you consume will help you maintain, lose, or gain weight.

 

Fit Fact:  Each day, a typical teen girl burns 2,200 calories and a typical teen boy burns 2,800 calories.

Fit Fact: No more than 30% of the calories you consume in a day should come from fat.

Fit Fact: 3500 calories = 1 pound

Grading and Assessment

Power School will show two categories, Summative (80%) and Formative (20%) Assessments. Summative Assessments, if scored 79% or lower may be retaken after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Retakes and/or make-ups must be completed three days prior to the end of the Trimester. The highest grade on a retake will be 80%. If a grade shows as a .5 in the grade book, this means the student is recommended to complete/make-up the assignment after school or During PAWS. Students who are injured/sick and are excused from activities by a parent or medical note, are required to make-up all missing assignments.
