RCS Launches ‘Take Your Parent to PE Week’ 

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District will hold its 3rd Annual ‘Take Your Parent to PE Week’ from September 23-27, 2019.

Interested in joining the fun activities? Registration materials have been sent home with students. If you missed on that opportunity, feel free to reach out to your child’s PE teacher to register.

During the campaign, parents are introduced to their child’s physical education program and encouraged to engage throughout the year while being physically active together at home and in the community. The program will be held in each school within the RCS district throughout the week. Please note: A.W. Becker Elementary events will be held through September 23-26 with their annual Apple Run occurring on Sept. 27.

“We highly value opportunities for our students to be active and enjoy the number of extracurricular activities in our district. Whether it’s the simple joy of running or a great game of kickball, we encourage each student to get involved,” said RCS Superintendent Brain Bailey. “We have great instructors and coaches throughout our district that assist students with being comfortable in physical education classes and we find it’s a great combination to add parents/caregivers in those efforts. It’s fun and simple and more importantly, healthy for everyone.”

This year’s campaign involves a number of activities scheduled for those families and students looking to participate. The program seeks to engage to enable kids to feel better, work together as a team, reduce anxiety, maintain focus in the classroom and develop lifelong healthy habits.

“We are thrilled to have the involvement of parents and caregivers with their child’s physical education efforts,” said RCS Physical Education Teacher Megan McClave. “This is a fun and educational component to our activity programs. We’re combining sports and lifetime fitness activities with students and their loved ones. It’s a win-win situation for staff and the overall RCS community.”
