FitnessGram Assessment

As a result of the S.H.A.P.E. Act passed in 2009, all Georgia students enrolled in a physical education course (grades 1-12) are required to participate in the FitnessGram Assessment.

Below is how this affects students at Dade Elementary School:

- All students in grades 1-5 will be accessed.

- Grades 1, 2, & 3 will only be tested in the Body Composition component of the program (derived from height and weight only).

- Grades 4 & 5 will receive the complete five-test assessment:

  • Body Composition
  • Push-ups
  • Curl-ups
  • The Pacer Run
  • Flexability (the Backsaver Sit and Reach)

- Parents of students in grades 4 & 5 will receive a parent report indicating the results of their child(ren).  NOTE:  This report will be sent home in a sealed envelope with each child.

Parents should encourage their child(ren) to do their best in the FitnessGram program.
