• Dear Parents,

     Studies show physical activity:

    .  improves clear thinking

    .  increases self confidence

    .  positively impacts student’s performance in school.

    Our goal, at Cooper City Elementary, is to provide the skills and

    opportunities for your child to learn and embrace health and fitness for life. 

    Most Important - The Parent’s Role

    To help your child be successful this year, please follow our PE program guidelines:

    Doctor’s Notes

    If your child needs to be excused from fitness activities, please provide a doctor’s note explaining 

    .  why your child can not participate

    .  and a date when the child will be able to rejoin participation in class  

    Athletic Shoes

    Your child will need athletic shoes (sneakers, tennis shoes) to participate in activities.  They must have a flat bottom (no heel) and the foot must be fully covered.  Sandals, Crocs, clogs, dress shoes, boots and any heeled shoes are not appropriate for class.  One way to always have your child prepared is to have an extra pair of athletic shoes kept at school, in the classroom or kept in backpack.   

    This year students will learn and refine skills in the fitness areas.  The skills are sequenced through the year with your child’s abilities in mind.  The overall goal being to help your child learn, experience and be successful.   We define success as accomplishing skills rather than focusing on “winning” and “competition.”  

    I am here to make a positive impact in your child’s life.  If you have questions or information that might help me better work with your child please contact me.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Karen Josack
