WPHS Physical Education Fitness Challenge

The Walter Panas Physical Education staff created a Fitness Challenge to encourage our students to become more active. This challenge is a choice for students who are motivated to get stronger, fitter and healthier. Any student who completes the challenge criteria will earn a T-shirt and get their name posted in the gymnasium.
