As partners in the Active Schools movement, you understand the importance of physical education when it comes to the overall development of our nation’s students. Daily activity is crucial for kids’ healthy physical, social and emotional, and academic development.
Now in its 3rd year, Take Your Parent to PE Week is a fun, immersive way to introduce parents to the physical education program and teachers at schools across the country. The week-long, national campaign encourages parents to engage with PE throughout the year and encourages families to be physically active together at home and in the community.
We hope you’ll help us spread the word via your networks, and please be sure to direct people to our parent and school toolkits for participation.
While not mandatory, we hope you’ll encourage schools in your network to register as a Take Your Parent to PE Week participant. It will help us track success and registered schools will be eligible to receive prizes from our generous partners.
