The club will focus on the old Presidential Fitness standards (it no longer exists) in which the students practice the 5 fitness tests that measure flexibility, agility, muscular strength, muscular endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance. We will still be using the past Presidential guidelines and tests standards for achieving the title of a Potowmack Fit Eagle. As in the past, these standards are what we use for the Potowmack Eagle Wall of Fame records. Our wonderful PTA is helping purchase our newly designed Potowmack Eagle Fitness Shirts which will be awarded to those students that pass all 5 of the PMK fitness tests. Presidential Fitness shirts were awarded to students before and now the new designed shirts will be given to them. K-5th graders learn how to do the tests and practice the tests as well as participate in activities & games that will help benefit their fitness levels on their way to becoming a Potowmack Fit Eagle. The shirts are awarded to only the students who achieve all 5 PMK fit tests. If your child already received a shirt from the fall session, they will be awarded a star to put on their shirt. Every year the shirts will be a different color. So all students who have achieved their first year will be awarded a purple shirt, 2nd year a red shirt, etc. (almost like Karate and their different colored belts. The 4 sessions will be 90 minutes .
