Dear Teachers:

Thank you for visiting the PACES Day web page. After organizing Project ACES for many years, many parents would email me that they would like to get involved in their children's fitness activities. This was the main reason why I started PACES Day. I hope that you will consider spreading the word about PACES to the families at your school. Post the PACES Day sample letter in your school newsletter or on the school web page. The more families that sign up, the more successful the program will become. The purpose of the sign up page is to give your students ownership to the program. It is a wonderful motivational tool for them to see their family name on the international web page. Rest assured, by signing up, their name is not given to any third parties, nor do they have any type of obligations.

Why PACES Day? The obesity epidemic facing the youth of the world today is staggering. Over the last 20 years, the amount of overweight and obese children has significantly increased. Type 2 diabetes is on the rise, along with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and physical inactivity.....all related to this health concern. I encourage you to visit my children's fitness blog to read the many articles pertaining to this important topic. Also, feel free to distribute to your students all the handouts on the PACES Day downloads page.

Physical education is such an important component to your school curriculum. PACES Day was developed to support the need for daily, quality PE in the schools. The children can apply all the skills they have learned in their PE class at home with their family. The event is not limited to just PE teachers, but classroom teachers as well. Thank you for all your support.

Yours in fitness,
