The Golden Dumbbell at TLC! is awarded quarterly as part of our physical education program. Research & Curriculum Coordinator, Ms. Cheryl, explains it best:
The Golden Dumbbell is awarded to the class that has the highest percentage of students at the presidential level in five different events. Presidential means that they have a level of fitness that is in the 85th percentile or higher in United States. Third grade has 50% of the students at presidential level. As a school we have 26% at presidential fitness level and the goal is 40%.
The third quarter Golden Dumbbell was awarded to the third grade class. Yeah third graders!
