Nothing motivates kids more than having a parent involved in everyday activities at school. During this new school year, become a part of your child's physical education. Try volunteering in your child's physical education class, help organize a special physical activity event at the school, or volunteer to be a recess monitor. It will be time well spent, and you will learn more about your child and about the programs we offer.
Physical education is not just for school. Research shows that youth engagement in physical activity is influenced by participation and support of parents and siblings. When families are active together, they spend additional time together and experience health benefits.
Think about experts and activities in our community that might consider some pro bono work at school. Do you have any contacts with managers of a roller skating rink, golf course, bowling alley or swimming pool that our school can access? Do you know any marital arts, fitness, dance or outdoor recreation experts who could share their experiences and knowledge with our students? Help bring those unique partners to our school community so that kids have the opportunity to explore the activity world beyond the walls of our school.
Family and community involvement is critically important to the success of our Let's Move in School program. Please join us in getting your children physically active a minimum of 60 minutes every day.
