    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    This letter is to inform you about the PHYSICAL FITNESS assessment that will occur during your child’s fourth and fifth grade years. 

          The assessment is comprised of four components:

     1.    One Mile Walk/Run   (measures cardiovascular endurance)

     2.    Curl-Ups   (indicates abdominal strength)

     3.       Flexed Arm Hang  (tests upper body strength)

     4.    Back saver sit and Reach   (indicates flexibility)

     The Physical Fitness assessment is usually started by the P.E. staff during the third marking period and concluded during the last marking period.

     The fourth graders’ goal is to complete each section of the assessment to the best of their ability.  The fifth graders should strive to improve on their previous years’ performance.

     During the course of the school year, our P.E. programs include various activities that incorporate fitness components; however, it would be in your child’s best interest to do some preparation outside of school.  Any activities that would practice the assessed skills will be beneficial to improving your child’s performance.

     If at any time during the school year you have questions or need some suggestions for activities, please contact your child’s P.E. teacher.

     Sincerely,

    Mr.  Irving
