Ultimate P.E. Test For Area Kids

Fifth-graders at all four Kaiser Complex elementary schools get an ultimate P.E. test March 31 during their annual fitness meet at Kaiser High School.

From 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. that day, they all will be evaluated against standards developed by Healthy Fitness Zone, which measures personal fitness rather than performance.

Parents will receive a copy of their scores, called a FitnessGram.

Coordinated by Honolulu District health and physical education resource teacher Denise Darval-Chang and P.E. teachers at Hahaione, Kamiloiki, Koko Head and Aina Haina elementary schools, the meet will measure heart and lung performance, upper body strength via push-ups, abdominal strength via curl-ups, spine flexibility via trunk lifts, hamstring flexibility via sitand-reach exercises, and body composition via body fat tests.
