Dear Parent and/or Guardian:

Our school, ____________________________, has registered 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 and is sponsored by PE Central (, the premier Web site for 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.

The PE Central Challenge© is not a one-time test, but rather a set of challenges that your child can practice and improve upon. Your child is encouraged to take as many chances as it takes to complete each of the challenges. There are 6 tasks that make up the Challenge©. These six challenges are:

Participation certificates can be earned by all participants and individual pins will be awarded to those students who successfully complete all or most of the challenges.

The PE Central Challenge© is a wonderful opportunity for your child to improve and be recognized for their motor skills. To increase your child's chances at successfully completing the tasks and earning a pin or certificate I am strongly encouraging our students to practice at home.

We will begin the PE Central Challenge© on _____________, ____. The last day for students to complete the Challenge is _____________, ____.

If you are interested or need more information about the tasks, their criteria, and ideas for practicing at home, please call _______________ at _______________ by __________. Or return the bottom of this letter to __________________ by __________.
