We will begin our fitnessgram testing in the next few weeks. Fitnessgram is a measurement of fitness and activity levels in children. This is a requirement for every school and all students must participate. If you have any questions, feel free to go to the website: www.fitnessgram.net. Fitnessgram last year was fun and an eyeopener for some students! Along with state and national requirements, our campus is dedicated to teaching your children to be healthy and make healthy choices now and throughout their lives.
I hope that all of you have had a nice summer and are ready to get back to school. I am so excited about the new school year!
This year P.E. will be as fun as ever. We are going to begin the year reviewing playground, game, and equipment expectations and safety. . Have a great weekend and I will see each of you Monday.
Looking forward to a safe and healthy year,

The Pledge to Run and Be Active program is a monitored 8-week program. The students will be tested during the first week: height, weight, and body mass index (BMI). Students in grades 3-5 will run/walk 1 mile. Students in grades K-2 will run/walk 800 meters. All information from this testing will be recorded. During weeks 2-7, students will do a specific workout that is designed to help students in grades 3-5 complete a mile jogging and students in grades K-2 complete a 1/2 mile. No student will be pushed beyond his or her limit. All students will be allowed to walk or rest as needed. At the end of the program, each student will receive a certificate of completion.
The program cost is $10 per child. Students will receive a t-shirt and dog tag necklace. This program will take place during school hours.
The pledges from this program will go directly to the student’s school and will be used to purchase equipment for student use.
