The Gym

Welcome to the Still Elementary Physical Education Department

 

 

Please review the dress code! 

Coach B and Mrs. Bramlett are back and ready to go!  Safety is our top priority.  Please ensure that your child has proper rubber soled shoes.  NO HEELS OR OPENED TOE SHOES.  With field trips and schedule changes, keeping a pair of shoes in your child’s book bag will eliminate confusion and lack of preparedness. 

Water bottles are always welcome, please put your students name on them!  During the warmer months, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen are appropriate.  Please label all items

We will have Walking Wednesdays.  Please dress you student appropriately for the weather.  If it is raining, we will hold our event inside the gym. 

If your student is sick or hurt and cannot participate, PLEASE SEND A NOTE WITH A DATE WHEN THEY CAN RETURN AND PARTICIPATE.

Fitnessgram

 

What is Fitnessgram?

Cobb County Schools use the Fitnessgram testing protocol. Fitnessgram is a comprehensive health-related fitness and activity assessment and computerized reporting system.
Fitnessgram tests the five health components of fitness which are:

Aerobic capacity/ Cardiovascular endurance: The Pacer Test
Body Composition: Body Mass Index (BMI)A calculation of the ratio of weight to height.
Muscular Endurance: Curl Up
Muscular Strength: Push Ups

Flexibility: Sit and Reach Test


To all Still Elementary Parents of Physical Education Students:

Still Elementary Fitnessgram assessments will be done with our students once at the beginning of the school year, and again at the end of the year.
Parents play an important role in shaping children's physical and dietary habits. This report will help you evaluate your child's current level of health-related fitness and help

you identify ways to promote healthy lifestyles in your family.
Our Physical Education Department activities throughout the school year are designed to help students grow and improve in their physical fitness levels.

We look forward to a productive and enjoyable year with your children.

 

 

Welcome to the gym!  We are the largest classroom in the school.  It is super important that students wear tennis shoes on their PE days.  As a friendly reminder, we do not tie tennis shoes after Christmas Break.
