    Please be aware of the fitness requirement of the class. Your son or daughter must be physically fit enough to complete the required hikes and biking trips. This class is not designed for students with low fitness levels. The class is 6 hours per day and the students will be tired at the end of each day. Please talk to your son or daughter about the expectations, they may need to get in shape before the class starts by biking and hiking. This class is not advised for students whom are not comfortable riding a bike for long distances. Students will not be excused from an activity due to low fitness levels.

    * Minimum Fitness Requirement: All students must be able to hike 5 miles, mountain bike 20 miles, and learn introductory rock climbing skills.



    The students will earn .5 Physical Education credit toward the 1.5 required to graduate. The class will be graded as a letter grade on the student’s participation. Students may miss one day, but will earn no higher than a B for a grade unless arrangements are made to make up one day missed.


    * Students may RETAKE the class one time as long as they earned a B or better.



    Please wear clothes that are appropriate for exercise and activity. When hiking/biking, be prepared for rain etc. The time at the high school will be spent doing various activities such as tennis, orienteering, archery,disk golf, badminton, ping-pong etc. Please bring a water bottle, healthy snacks and a lunch each day. A small backpack will be needed for hiking and biking trips. We encourage the students to bring their cell phones on the field trips for safety and picture taking. Hats, sunscreen and sunglasses are also encouraged. NO JEANS. Hiking boots are fine, but you will also need to bring tennis shoes.



    * Personal transportation will be required at times. In the years past, students and parents have car pooled which has worked well. Please let me and or other parents/students know if you are available to help car pool. As teachers, we are not allowed to drive students with our own private vehicles. I will send out a roster so you can see who is in the class to make transportation plans easier. Students may also drive themselves and or each other.
