It is important that all students bring clothes at the beginning of the week for P.E. and take them home to be washed at the end of the week. Not bringing clothes for class will result in a loss of their daily participation points.
At the beginning of the fall semester each student will be participating in physical fitness tests. These tests include the 50 yard dash, mile run, sit-up test, shuttle run, standing long jump, and arm hang/pull-ups. The students will revisit these tests at the end of the spring semester.
