From Dr. Clifford Fulmore, South Carolina PTA, Immediate Past President
When my children started school, more than 20 years ago, I knew I wanted to be involved with their educations. I started as a classroom volunteer and quickly took on leadership roles with the PTA in our school district and state. It is through this work that I have come to appreciate the important partnership parents and schools have in educating and supporting children in the pursuit of healthy lifestyles.
95% of parents agree that physical education is a key component of every student’s education. Not only does it reinforce the healthy habits we work to instill at home, but PE helps kids flourish physically, academically, socially, and emotionally. And that is something we can all get behind.
To help protect physical education in schools, hundreds of advocates across the country have added their photos to the Voices for Healthy Kids PE Photo Map- and I am asking you to join us in showing your support. Just snap your “I heart PE” photo and click on the map below to post it for your state… it’s as simple as that!
Thank you for joining me as one voice for every child- and one voice for PE!
