Fitness Testing Begins for Upper School Students

Fitness Testing Begins for Upper School Students
Posted on 03/02/2015
To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. -Buddha

Amigos Upper School students will be partaking in fitness testing that measures Cardiovascular Endurance, Flexibility, Muscular Strength, and Muscular Endurance. Students will be encouraged to challenge themselves to do their personal best, create fitness goals, and reflect on their personal fitness habits in and out of school. Students and families will be able to track their private fitness scores from this year and into high school through the fitnessgram database.  

Students will be given long-term fitness projects which they may have to complete outside of school. We will be holding our youth to a high standard to learn physiological concepts and make fitness goals and healthy choices that will help give them the foundation to live a happy and healthy life. I am asking for your support in encouraging students to complete assignments and take this material seriously. After all, we are only given one body and it is our responsibility to take care of it.  

Sincerely,

Patrick Kantlehner
Amigos Upper School Health and PE Teacher
