Fitness Testing Explained
Fitness testing occurs each year in elementary school. Children practice hard for these tests with the goal of improving their fitness. Their fitness report will show you how your child did this year during fitness testing. Please do not focus on the letter grade. That is there just to show you where they would sit if these tests were graded. The ultimate goal is for each child to improve their fitness from year to year. Any type of improvement is excellent!
Please encourage your child to do their best on these tests. Staying fit is very important throughout life and fitness testing helps many people see where their fitness levels are. The results can be used to help students and parents work on improving fitness.
