Fitnessgram


What is Fitnessgram?

Cobb County Schools use the Fitnessgram testing protocol. Fitnessgram is a comprehensive health-related fitness and activity assessment and computerized reporting system.
Fitnessgram tests the five health components of fitness which are:

Aerobic capacity/ Cardiovascular endurance: The Pacer Test
Body Composition: Body Mass Index (BMI)A calculation of the ratio of weight to height.
Muscular Endurance: Curl Up
Muscular Strength: Push Ups

Flexibility: Sit and Reach Test


To all Still Elementary Parents of Physical Education Students:

Still Elementary Fitnessgram assessments will be done with our students once at the beginning of the school year, and again at the end of the year.
Parents play an important role in shaping children's physical and dietary habits. This report will help you evaluate your child's current level of health-related fitness and help you identify ways to promote healthy lifestyles in your family.
Our Physical Education Department activities throughout the school year are designed to help students grow and improve in their physical fitness levels. We look forward to a productive and enjoyable year with your children.



Welcome to the gym!  We are the largest classroom in the school.  It is super important that students wear tennis shoes on their PE days.  As a friendly reminder, we do not tie tennis shoes after Christmas Break.
