Dear Parents or Guardians:
Your child has the opportunity to participate in a climbing wall unit as part of our physical education program.
We are using a traverse climbing wall to host many exciting activities. At its highest point, the wall measures eight/ten feet. Participants climb horizontally (traverse) across the wall and their feet should never be higher than three/three and a half 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 is one of the fastest growing activities today. It simultaneously develops coordination, strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, important life skills like problem solving, goal setting, perseverance, confidence and patience will be learned in this unit.
In order for your child to participate in our climbing wall unit, I must have a signed permission slip. Should you have any questions regarding this exciting educational opportunity, please do not hesitate to call.
