Athens Academy’s students recently completed the President’s Challenge Physical Fitness Testing for the fall, and, once again, they have distinguished themselves as they work toward a high level of personal wellness! Students in grades 3-8 completed five tests that included a one-mile run, vertical sit and reach, sit-ups, push-ups and the shuttle run.
This fall, 402 students participated in the testing, of which 144 achieved Presidential recognition, which requires students to score 85% or higher on all five tests. In addition, 263 students earned a National certificate, which requires a score of 50% or higher on all five tests. In addition, sixth grader Mary Hollis Pugmire set a school record of 200 push-ups, and two students tied school records: eighth grader Julia Krehbiel tied the sit and reach record with +14 inches, and fourth grader Chloë Love Bell had a 9.1 second shuttle run.
