Every year, students in grades fifth and seventh have to partake in the often dreaded Physical Fitness Test, where the teachers test each and every student on their physical abilities. Well, that time came for all students in seventh grade that happen last week for seventh-graders at Stacey Middle School.
There were several different abilities that were tested including the sit and reach, curl-ups, the mile run, and push-ups. Besides that, they also took the students’ height and weight.
For things such as the curl-ups, push-ups, and the mile run, every student has to reach a certain goal, which varies due to gender.
The students were tested on a different physical ability every day. But lucky for those eighth graders, they didn’t have to do the PE testing this year because they did it last year.
