The PK8 Athletic Achievement Board

Students in each grade level who score the highest in the Pacer, Push Ups, Sit Ups, 1/2 Mile, Mile, Burpees, and more are recognized on the PE Board next to the gym. Names on the sports balls are current high scores and names on the trophy are all-time records. Students can hold an all-time record in a previous grade level until someone in that grade level beats it. Ask your child if their name is on the board, and be sure to check it out the next time you are in the building!
