Fitness Fridays
Studies show that active kids do better. Physical activity not only helps kids stay healthy and strong, but it can also lead to higher test scores, improved attendance, better behavior in class and lower rates of childhood obesity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), school-aged youth should participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. At Weld Central Middle School we have implemented Fitness Friday into our PE schedule to help in these efforts.

Fitness Friday was built into the PE program to get students up and active with the idea of fitness improvement, students are asked to participate for a work ethic/ standard based grade of physical activity each Friday.  We make safety our top priority during class – please know before, during and after class all students are encouraged to drink water. 

During Fitness Fridays students are informed to bring their inhalers and those with breathing problems are told to take it easy and if at any time they felt tightness in their chests (or other medical needs) to let us know immediately.   

The mile-
One of the most important assessments in physical education is aerobic, or cardiorespiratory, fitness. Aerobic fitness refers to the ability of the body to pick up oxygen, transport it through the body and have the body use it. Students will complete a running assessment in the distance of one mile.  The mile run
tests cardiorespiratory fitness levels by having students run one mile ( four laps around the track) as fast as possible. Students will be assessed using the national standards for their age group.
