LAUSD mandates elementary school students receive 200 minutes of physical education every two weeks.

At Third Street School, the teachers are responsible for their students’ physical education.  Friends of Third, through parent donations, funds a Playground Coach who assists teachers with varied P. E. activities.  

In 5th grade, students are required to take a Physical Fitness Test (PFT).  The state-designated PFT is the FITNESSGRAM.
