Your child has the opportunity to participate in a climbing wall unit as a part of our physical education program, this 2021-2022 school year.
We are using a traverse climbing wall, which was funded by the PE department, along with our wonderful Community Club! At its highest point, the wall measures eight feet and is twenty feet long. Participants climb horizontally (traverse) across the wall and their feet should never be higher than three/three-and-a-half feet off the ground. Your child will be informed of safety rules and will climb under the careful supervision of an adult instructor at all times.
Indoor rock climbing simultaneously develops coordination, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, important life skills like problem-solving, goal-setting, perseverance, inner confidence and patience will be learned in this unit.
In order for your child to participate in our climbing wall unit, we must have a signed permission slip by Wednesday, September 1st. Please return to your child's PE teacher. Should you have any questions regarding this exciting educational opportunity, please do not hesitate to contact us.
