            My name is Mr. Powers and I am excited to inform you that I will be your son/daughter’s Physical Education Teacher for the current semester.  In this letter, I would like to share with you some important information about this course and ask you for your support.


            The goal of my Physical Education class is for your child to develop an appreciation for physical activity and lifelong physical fitness.  This may be a difficult task, but please know that I am strongly committed to this goal.  I am convinced that your child will have a better quality and quantity of life if this goal is met.  I also strongly believe that their performance in every other subject area will improve if they are leading a physically active lifestyle. 


            I have been teaching this subject for over 10 years and understand the challenges that I will face in attempting to motivate this class of teenagers to be active during the school day and beyond.  I will often be asking your son/daughter to do things that are challenging and physically demanding.  We will be participating in activities that are focused on enhancing your child’s cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, speed, and hand-eye coordination.


            I am asking for your support with this challenge.  You play an integral role in the success of your child in this and all other classes.  I am asking you to encourage your son/daughter to participate to the best of their ability during my class.  Furthermore, please encourage them to share what he/she has learned in my class with you and the rest of your family. 


            Please know that if your child is struggling during my class, I will contact you immediately.  Likewise, if you have any questions or comments throughout the semester, please feel free to contact me using the information below.  Please also encourage your child to voice any concerns that they may have.

I am looking forward to a great semester of activity and building a relationship with your child. 


                                                                                  With Great Enthusiasm,


                                                                                                Mr. Powers
