PERIODICALLY through the first nine weeks of school some 400 Algona fourth, fifth and sixth grade boys and girls have been busily engaged in taking the National Youth Fitness Test. This test is sponsored by the American Association of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, and is under the local direction of Mrs. Linda Hanson and Mr. Jim Welton. The Youth Fitness Test is given annually in hundreds of schools throughout the United States. Standards have been established indicating the degree of achievement which should be attained at each grade level. Shown above are the 58 children of the Algona Public School System who have received their badge which is symbolic of satisfactory or superior fitness achievement. The test included seven items. They are the 50 yard dash, 600 yard run and walk, Softball throw, chin up for boys, flexed arm hang for girls, situps, standing broadjump, and the shuttle run. Both Mrs; Hanson and Mr. Welton were pleased with the number of students receiving awards and expressed hope that 50% of the boys and girls attain their goal when tested again in the spring. Fitness tests also benefit the teachers. They tell how children in Algona compare with those all over the United States. They also note specific physical weaknesses which aids in choosing the type and amount of physical activity for classes. This is the first time this test has been administered in Algona to elementary students. Exclusive Photo by Kossuth County Advance.
