Physical Education - CT Fitness Test

For all parents of 6th and 8th graders:

They can also bring water bottles when it's time for the mile run. We plan on starting October 1st. The test has four parts: mile run, push-up, curl-up, and sit-n-reach. Each test has statewide standards for boys, girls, and age groups. The standards are listed below:
