Pelham Setting the Pace on the PACER Test

Posted on Friday, November 10, 2017 at 10:41 am

Students at Pelham Elementary School recently participated in the PACER test. The PACER test is a 20-meter shuttle run, where students run back and forth as many times as they can between two markers, using an audio CD to guide their pace. The test is one way that school physical educators can measure students’ physical endurance.
This test is given 3 times during the school year to students in grades 4, 6, and 8. To encourage students to do their best, the Grundy County Coordinated School Health Office recognizes those students who run the most laps in the participating grades.
Pelham Elementary is proud to announce several county winners. 4th grade girls: Alexandra Reese (1st), Lana Layne (2nd), and Gracie Rogers (3rd); 4th grade boys: Carson Kelly (1st) and Jasper Meeks (2nd); 6th grade girls: Chloe Wenger (1st); 6th grade boys: Jacob Layne (1st) and Issac Martin (2nd); 8th grade girls: Heidi Buckner (3rd); 8th grade boys: Justin Jacobs (1st), Chase Layne (2nd), and Lynden King (3rd).  Justin Jacobs and Fletcher Barnard completed over 100 laps on their PACER test. Fletcher complet-ed 102 laps and Justin completed 107.
