7th/8th Grade Physical Education--7th Grade Active Health

We have started California State Physical Fitness Testing. A letter was sent home explaining all 6 tests. The California PFT website goes into great detail regarding the tests.

It is crucial that students have proper nutrition, rest, and hydration to ensure they can perform at their best for the tests.

The top 10 reasons why we assign the Tuffree Cardio-log!!

10-Three days of cardio meets the California State Standard for 3-4 days of vigorous physical activity.
9- It is a great opportunity to try new activities and get family more active.
8- Cardio-logs give an active person a chance to practice their specific sport.
7- The cardio-log and its principles help the student learn how to train their body to be more efficient.
6- Physical activity is a great stress reducer.
5- Physical activity reduces body fat and helps to maintain a healthy body weight.
4- Physical activity boosts the immune system and contributes to less illness.
3- Physical activity helps overall focus in the classroom.
2- Scientific studies show that a physically active person gets higher academic grades.
And the #1 reason a student should complete their cardio-log on a weekly basis is……

Because it is good for you to get off the couch and out of the house and MOVE!!
