September 2018, students in 3rd-8th grade will begin PRACTICE fitness testing during the 1st trimester.
The Fitness Gram assessment will consist of 4 tests.
- The Pacer Test (15m)
- Curl Up Test (situps)
- Push Up Test
- Flexibility (sit & reach)
All scores will be recorded for the PE Department. As this is now a state mandate for all students, accommodations are available for students that need them. Please encourage your child to do their best during the exams. Students will be given practice time prior to testing to learn the testing expectations and procedures. These annual fitness assessments provide the Physical Education Department with anecdotal data that will help to maintain healthy fitness levels throughout the school year and to track student growth from year to year.
