In PE we work towards achieving goals in two main areas: fitness and effort.

    FITNESS
    Franklin Elementary has adopted the fitness standards from NASPE (National Association for Sports and Physical Education. There are 4 assessments given to students which cover Cardio respiratory Endurance (CRE), Muscular Endurance (ME), Muscular Strength (MS) and Flexibility (F). These assessments are the Pacer Test (CRE), Push-Up Test (MS), One Minute Curl Up Test (ME) and the Sit and Reach Test (F).
    ***These grades are simply a way for students to understand where they reside in regards to health. The overall goal of assessing fitness is to create awareness and to help students to set goals and improve on future assessments. In no way do these assessments affect the outcome of a student’s total effort grade in class***
