You will work with your CT to complete the test in the Spring. However, your student(s) have the option of completing their one-mile run at a time To Be Announced at the Eureka High School track on Del Norte Street. Your student can also use a treadmill when completing their one-mile dash or run 22 laps around any little league baseball field (22 laps around the bases equals one-mile).

Your CT will have a copy of the PE testing form or you may download the form off the Alder Grove website. If your student participates in the Eureka High one-mile walk/run, please make sure they are wearing loose clothing that enables them to move.
