Dear Staunton Families:

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, all fifth, seventh and tenth grade students will be participating in 4 different physical fitness tests based on the FitnessGram Model of assessment with the Staunton Schools Physical Education Staff.  This is the most widely used youth physical fitness assessment, education, and reporting tool in the world.  This testing and reporting is being mandated by the Illinois State Board of Education due to Public Act 98-0859, signed into law on August 4, 2014.  

The students will complete the following 4 activities:

  • PACER (Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run) Test

  • Curl-Up Test

  • 90 Degree Push-Up Test

  • Sit & Reach Test 

Students will be called to the gym by grade and will complete the test in an hour and return to class.

If you would like to learn more about the FitnessGram Model or the State Board requirements, please see the links listed below:



Thank you for your continued support and commitment to your child’s academic growth and success!
