Simple Steps to Achieve your BEST in Physical Education...
Get used to the locker room. Don't worry about people looking at you while you change. Nearly the entire time no one is watching you. The locker room has a no cameras/phone policy.
Keep your things safe while you're in class. Lock your locker at all times, even if you think no one will be in the locker room. There's nothing worse to coming back from class to find your shirt/shoes/wallet/phone/etc. missing.
Come to class on time. Realize you have a limited amount of time to dress, so be quick.
Don't ever decide not to dress. "Dress cuts" effect your grade enormously. Unless you made a mistake and left your clothes at home, don't purposely decide not to dress. Even if you hate running, it's better to run slowly and get credit for the day than to get no points for the run.
Don't mess around, chat with your friends, or generally misbehave during warm-ups or roll.
During runs, take it slow and easy. Don't sprint ahead and then lose steam after the first 1/2 lap. Run at a steady rhythm and pace. Try not to stop and walk more than twice during a run. Don't worry about what place you come in--it's gym class, not the Olympics.
During sports, try to generally participate in games, even if you're bad at them. You don't have to be the star player making all the points, but don't just stand there either.
Try your best. PE teachers are human, and they will most likely recognize if you're trying.
