Physical Education Program

The Washington Manor Physical Education Program's purpose and focus is to develop and promote good health, advanced motor skills, improved self-confidence and increased levels of fitness in all students through the implementation of a high-quality, standards-aligned program.

  • Expectations:
  • To show respect
  • To wear proper clothing for the prescribed activity, facility and weather
  • To place backpack in the proper area and to not handle the property of others
  • To follow directions and do your personal best
  • To complete all work and class responsibilities
  • To take care of restroom needs before class
  • To respect facilities and equipment

Students do not change clothing for PE, and there are no lockers provided at WMMS. You need to wear clothes and shoes that are suitable for sports activities everyday. It is recommended students carry a change of shoes in their backpacks. Students' grades are based on participation, and clothing will not be an excuse for non-participation. All students must participate in all activities unless a doctor or parent note is provided. If a student cannot participate for more than three days, a doctor's note is required. If a student is absent, they must provide make-up work to maintain their grade. Arrangements for make-up work must be made with the student's PE teacher immediately upon the student's return. Contact your child's teacher with any questions.


Sports Program

The purpose of athletics at WMMS is to develop life-long habits of fitness, self-discipline, perseverance, personal improvement, sportsmanship, teamwork, and to have fun! All students can participate in a variety of interscholastic sports at WMMS. The following sports may be available:

  • Girls' Softball
  • Flag Football
  • Cross-country Track

Some teams may require 'try-outs' to make the team. Each team will compete against other teams in the San Leandro, San Lorenzo, and Castro Valley school systems.


Physical Clearance: All students are required to have a physical examination by a doctor to be cleared to participate on any sports team. Sports physical forms are available for the Athletic Director or in the school office.

Grades: In order to participate on a competitive sports team, all students must maintain a 2.0 GPA with no 'F' grades at progress report time, at the start of a grading period or during the grading period. A student can be taken off a team of failing to maintain the grading requirements.

Sportsmanship and Behavior: All students participating on a competitive sports team must demonstrate good sportsmanship and respectful behavior for all players, coaches, and referees. All team members must follow the instruction of the coaches. Any unsportsmanlike or unacceptable conduct by a player may result in removal from the team.
