Challenge of the Week: Physical Fitness Testing

Challenge of the Week

Attention, All Parents of 5th, 7th, and 9th Graders!

In the spring of 2020, all 5th, 7th, and 9th graders in California participate in physical fitness testing. Your “challenge” in preparation for the test is to start having your child practice these skills now and throughout the year. By starting now, you can better prepare them to meet the spring’s physical fitness goals!
How to Prepare: Below are the videos for each test that will be given to 5th, 7th, and 9th grade iLEAD learners. Please view them with your learner and encourage them to practice so they’re familiar with the activities. On the day of the PFT, everyone is there to encourage, have a good time, and simply do the best they can. Please note: The videos may take a few moments to load.

It’s time for our annual physical fitness testing! The physical fitness test for California schools is called the FITNESSGRAM®. Only learners in grades 5, 7 and 9 will be participating in the testing. This is a state-mandated test and is conducted by your educational facilitator. If you have a learner in any of these three grade levels, be on the lookout for a letter from your educational facilitator with more information about the physical fitness test and the date and location they will be conducting it.

Thank you in advance for your participation! Please let your educational facilitator know if you have any questions.
