'Fit' Park Lane Wins State Championship

Park Lane Elementary has won the 2010-2011 President's Challenge State Championship, presented by the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition and the President's Challenge program.

To secure this honor, Park Lane posted Utah's highest percentage of students achieving Presidential Physical Fitness Awards. Those awards go to students who perform in the 85th percentile on five fitness categories.

This year's win marks Park Lane's 15th state championship – 12 of which were consecutive honors. The Canyons Board of Education honored the school, Park Lane Principal Karen Medlin, and the parent volunteers who help keep the Presidential Physical Fitness Challenge ingrained in school tradition at a Dec. 6, 2011 Board Meeting.
