Fitness Testing

Beginning October 15, 2018

for all students in Grades 4, 6, & 8!


Students in the above grades will begin fitness testing on their PE days.

Students need to wear PE uniforms & sneakers.

We encourage you to help your child get restful sleep, hydrate before & after, eat well balanced meals, plus encourage them to do their best.

These tests are valued by our district as much as the Smart Balance and other tests.


Let's have the best scores YET!
