The Physical Education/Health/Driver Education Department of Marengo Community High School works to instill responsible decision making and skills that lead to life time wellness, leadership, and cooperation through daily active participation.
PE DEPARTMENT FITNESS TESTS
Every six weeks the physical education department fitness tests all of the PE students using Fitnessgram. Their cardiovascular endurance is tested by the PACER, their muscular strength by push-ups, their muscular endurance through a curl-up test, their flexibility by the sit-n-reach, and their back flexibility through the trunk lift. Additionally we test their vertical jump and calculate their body mass index.
