Mrs. Lori Winans
My name is Mrs. Lori Winans. I married the love of my life, Justin Winans, in 2006. We have two kids, Jordan and Asher, that keep us busy with church and sports (especially travel softball). I have been teaching Health and Physical Education since 2007. I am passionate about my content and have extremely high expectations for my kids. Don't be surprised when they come home with homework for my class, but know that it is designed to make them happier and healthier. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY IMPORTANT CLASS INFORMATION!
In my class, I'm constantly focusing on helping students be the healthiest individuals they can be. This includes not only physical health but also mental and emotional. So, don't be surprised when they come home frustrated that they had to talk or think about their feelings.
All grades will start off with our Mental and Emotional Health Unit. We will cover topics from stress management strategies to recognizing signs of depression, and how to seek help for self and others.
If you ever have questions about what were are learning, please feel free to email me. I also have a link attached in the NC Curriculum Standards tab. This will give you a breakdown of the objectives so you know exactly what is being covered.
I'm including some basic information about things you need to know for my class.
Grading Policy - Work always has a due date! With that said, the majority of the time, students are allowed to turn work in late. There are very few assignments that cannot be made up, but students are notified when that happens, and they know there is an all-or-nothing deadline. But, for the purpose of holding students accountable (and to get them ready when they have due dates for bills) there is a deduction when work is turned in late.
- 10 points off per day when an assignment is late
- I stop taking points off after day 5
- I take into consideration absent days (but ALL projects have a hard deadline)
- I will NOT accept missing/late work more than 1 week after the original deadline
- ON A POSITIVE NOTE, I do give 5 points of extra credit (added to the earned grade) to each assignment when it is turned in early.
- Students always need a binder, pencils/pens, loose-leaf paper (If they have a large binder for all classes, then they can have a section in the binder for my class)
-Tissues, hand sanitizer, and cleaning wipes
We have an approximate 2-week rotating schedule between Health, indoor PE, and outdoor PE. During outdoor PE days, it is imperative that parents and students check the weather, so that students are able to dress appropriately and apply sunscreen at home on those days before coming to school.
A copy of this schedule can be found on the Daily Schedule tab.
It is very common for students to have homework on a regular basis in my class. So that you are able to help remind your kids, I keep a list of all homework assignments and due dates on my website. This is found on the Important Information tab.
