    What is Fitnessgram?
    FITNESSGRAM is a health related physical fitness assessment. Each of the test items were selected to assess important aspects of a student's health related fitness, not skill or agility. Students are compared not to each other, but to health fitness standards, carefully established for each age and gender, that indicate good health. Once the assessment has been done, the FITNESSGRAM report provides objective, personalized feedback and positive reinforcement which are vital to each students fitness and serve as a communications link between teachers and parents and students. These reports come home with the 1st and 3rd grading period report cards.
