Course Overview

At Mustang Horizon Intermediate we strongly believe that physical activity and participation are important for all students, regardless of their level of athletic skill or ability. Throughout various activities, students in our program will learn how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. In addition, we hope to instill enjoyment of physical activity, as well as an understanding of the importance of maintaining a physically active lifestyle

Dress: No specific apparel is required, however, tennis shoes will be stressed for safety purposes.

Absences: If your child is to miss extended class time, a note stating the situation will be needed.

Grades: Daily participation & self-discipline will be two defining elements in determining an overall grade. Each student will receive a Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, or Unsatisfactory grade throughout the course of the semester. At the conclusion of each quarter, the behavior chart will be refreshed.

What is FitnessGram?

FitnessGram® is the most widely used youth physical fitness assessment, education and reporting tool in the world. Based on Healthy Fitness Zone® standards, created by the FitnessGram Scientific Advisory Board, FitnessGram uses criterion-based standards, carefully established for each age and gender.

People come in all shapes and sizes, but everyone can benefit from regular physical activity and healthy levels of physical fitness. FitnessGram evaluates the five components of health-related fitness: Aerobic Capacity, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, Flexibility, and Body Composition.

FitnessGram uses scientifically determined standards that are based on how fit children should be for good health. Most children can achieve the health-related fitness standards if they perform sufficient amounts of physical activity on a regular basis. The standards are set specifically for boys and girls and take into account changes with age.

The FitnessGram assessment is based not on athletic ability, but levels of fitness needed for good overall health. No matter what your children grow up to become, they will live happier, more productive lives if they are healthy--and physical fitness is vital to overall health.
