Whether you are a parent, principal, superintendent, school board member, legislator or concerned citizen, you can play a very important role in helping our youth become active and in making quality physical education and physical activity a reality in your school. One way to do that is by organizing or participating in special physical activity events designed for families.
At www.LetsMoveInSchool.org, a project of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), you will find great suggestions for special family physical activity events. From hosting a dance party to organizing a bicycle rodeo, schools are the perfect places for children of all ages to have fun and move.
Here's your chance to experience the joys of being physically active with your family. Elementary school children in particular love to see their families attending school events and being physically active. Enjoying physical activities with your children is one of the best investments you and your family can make for better health. Children learn by example – if you enjoy and participate regularly in physical activity, so will your children. I look forward to seeing you at our next physical activity event!
