Track Competition:

Every other Thursday students run as many laps as they can in 12 minutes on the park district's indoor track above our gym. Parents, please let me know if you are interested in being added to our list of parent volunteers to help monitor students on the track in either the morning or afternoon. Track dates are listed below.

Track Volunteer Calendar 2016-2017

As of last school year, students in the state of Illinois are now required to do fitness testing. This will not be a part of the students' grades but will be used to set and work toward fitness goals. Seventh grade results will be sent to the state in the spring. We will complete pretesting this fall (same as 6th grade tests) and continue to train for and practice these tests during the school year. Tests required are the curl-ups (similar to traditional sit-ups testing muscular endurance), push-ups (testing muscular strength), sit and reach (testing flexibility), and PACER test (testing aerobic endurance). Besides the training we will be doing during PE classes, it is recommended that students also practice curl-ups, push-ups, planks, running, and stretching in their free time to improve and score in the Healthy Fitness Zone in the spring.
