Dear Teachers and Principals:
As President of the Connecticut Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, I would like to personally extend an invitation to your school to participate in the 28th anniversary of Project A.C.E.S. (All Children Exercising Simultaneously) on May 3rd, 2017. At 10 a.m. on May 3rd millions of students from all all over the world will exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits in what has been billed as “The World’s Largest Exercise Class”.
The first fifty schools to register their event with CTAHPERD by the April 14th deadline will receive a banner to commemorate their participation. Your school can register with Ellen Joly by email – email@example.com
Please provide your school’s full address, phone number, email and contact person so we can properly record your event and send you a banner! Reminder, teachers should not request banners through the Project A.C.E.S. program, but through Mrs. Joly’s email. Banners will be mailed out early in May!
Ann Marie Colebrook, CTAHPERD President
