New this year: Fitness Testing

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 have completed pretesting to get students acquainted with the tests used, and we will 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 this spring.
