Fitness testing takes place in fourth and fifth grade at Paul Road. We use the Fitnessgram as our fitness assessment tool in Gates-Chili. Students will get tested twice each year until they graduate from High School.
The Fitnessgram is a comprehensive educational, reporting and promotional tool used to assess physical fitness and physical activity levels for children. It is the most widely used children's health-related physical fitness assessment in the world.
The assessment measures three components of health-related physical fitness that have been identified as important to overall health and function:
- aerobic capacity;
- body composition; and
- muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility.
Parents will receive a print-out of their child's Fitnessgram report sent home.
