Dear Parents: I would like to remind you about the importance of your child's physical activity education. The percentage of overweight youths has more than tripled in the past 25 years partially due to increased interest in sedentary activities such as television, computers, and video games. A reduction in physical activity as well as an increase in caloric intake has contributed to an obesity epidemic. It is well documented that Americans become increasingly less active as they age. Just as children and youths can learn the habit of regular activity, they can learn to be inactive if they are not taught skills and given opportunities to be active during their childhood. Physical activity education in school physical education programs is the cornerstone of an active lifestyle of all students. School programs provide the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that facilitate choosing physical activity after school, at home, and in the community. As a highly-qualified education teacher, I pledge to: Establish a positive, safe learning environment for all students Teach a variety of physical activities that make physical education class fun and enjoyable Create maximum opportunities for students of all abilities to be successful. Promote student honesty, integrity, and good sportsmanship Guide students into becoming skillful and confident movers Facilitate the development and maintenance of physical fitness Assist students in setting and achieving personal goals Provide specific, constructive feedback to help students master motor skills Afford opportunities for students to succeed in cooperative situations Prepare and encourage students to practice skills and be active for a lifetime This school year I would like to invite you to visit our physical education class. You will see children participating in developmentally appropriate activities that will help increase their physical competence, self-esteem,and joy of being physically active no matter what their physical abilities may be. By enhancing your children's physical education, I am certain that we will be able to help your children enjoy a lifetime of physical activity and good health. I welcome your support! I am looking forward to "Picture Your Possibilities!" together. Please see me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Lorenzo Deraco Physical Education Teacher (201)337-8185 or contact me at DERACO@OAKLANDSCHOOLSNJ.ORG
