Our school has chosen to participate in the PE Central Challenge. The PE Central Challenge© is a unique program designed to encourage students to practice and improve their motor skills and be recognized for their accomplishments. This program was designed by PE Central -- the premier Web site for Health and Physical Education teachers. It is designed to encourage families, schools, and community organizations to help all children become more skillful movers, which, in turn, will encourage youngsters to become more physically active.
Participation certificates will be available to all participants and individual pins will be awarded to those students who master all or most of the challenges. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to improve and be recognized for their motor skill accomplishments. To increase each students' chances at successfully completing these tasks and earning a pin or certificate I am strongly encouraging them to practice at home, before or after school, and during their recesses.
You can help the children you care for to improve their motor skill abilities by:
Encouraging children to practice the motor skills at home, before or after school, and during their recesses. Encouraging families and caregivers to support children in their efforts to improve their motor skills and participation in the PE Central Challenge©. Posting information about the PE Central Challenge©. Providing opportunities for the children to practice the motor skills when they are with you. Getting materials from the physical education teacher to use with children in your care.
If you would like more information about the tasks, the criteria, and ideas to help your students' practice, please call _______________ at _______________. I appreciate your support of this program.
