March 2010 Gym News

For Spring fitness testing the District is requiring all 3rd – 5th grade students who receive the BMI (Body Mass Index) score to have a completed “Opt-In” permission form signed by their parents and on file at the school.  By signing this form, you are giving me permission to measure height and weight for your child which will give me the components needed to assess the BMI.  If this form is not returned for your child, I will still do all the fitness testing excluding the height and weight portion.  Children’s height and weight and BMI are confidential.  Please click here for the district form and here for the letter.

Please print, sign and return the form to school by March 22nd.  I will start fitness testing K-5 after Spring Break.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 252-2112 or sasturm@seattleschools.org.

Upcoming Activities will include: Volleyball and games working on bone, muscle and nutrition knowledge.

The Boardwalk 5K Run/Walk Coming in April: This is a fun and healthy way to raise money for the John Hay PE program.  Check the website in the next few weeks for more information and to sign up.

Thank you for your support!

Steve Sturm, PE Specialist
