Grades 3-7 have weekly fitness homework.

The homework is grade specific, matching the standard they have to meet to pass the April Fitness Gram tests.

They are required to complete the fitness homework 3 days/week, and takes less than 5 minutes/day.

Last year was our pilot year for the fitness homework, and we saw large gains in all fitness tests for all grades participating.

The grading is as follows:

10 points/week (3 points/day + 1 point for handing it in on time)

5 points for late work (due the following morning before school)

I only have the students 2 days a week, and if they are absent it can be difficult for them to find time to see me.  If they lost their fitness slip, or did not get one, they can make one on notebook paper.

Due to the fact that I only see the students 2 times/week, and I have 10 classes participating in this homework, approximately 250 students, it is difficult to keep up with absences and different issues, please have your student come to me if there is any problems.

Due dates:

3A: Monday

3B, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A: Thursday

4B, 5B, 6B, 7B: Friday


Thank you for your support with this task, as it takes a village!
