Parents, I'm writing to let you know that, in consultation with Ms. Knapp, the PTA board has decided to part ways with Coach Ray and Little Heroes. The company has struggled for some time to keep a coach on site consistently, so we've decided to begin the search for a new partner.
For those who are unfamiliar with Little Heroes: The PTA contracts with this company to provide PE instruction twice per month for each class and to support our staff at recess and lunch with games and supervision.
I know many of your kids will be disappointed to hear this; Coach Ray is wonderful with our students. We are hopeful we can find a new provider who will be just as beloved. In the meantime, school staff will be managing the Playground Heroes program, where our older students get to serve as recess leaders. All students will continue to have PE with their classroom teacher and/or Coach Johnson as part of their regular instructional day.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or any PTA board member. I will also be happy to answer questions in person at our next PTA meeting, on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7 in the library.
