When you look at this situation my way, you’ll realize that you’d like a pool of water in P.E you’d be swimming in. On January 13, 2012 I conducted a survey at Los Alisos Middle School asking the 6th period P.E students a question. My question was, ‘Would you like to have water sports in P.E at LMS?’ The result came out pretty obvious, 95% of the students agreed, they wanted WATER! You might consider how Carlos Espinosa thinks about this, “Well, I sort of agree. Anyways, it’s a new thing . . . what if it doesn’t work out?”
“Sure. It’ll be sort of different because we mostly do sports that a lot of kids SOMETIMES don’t like.” Aliyah Mirza, age 11 at Los Alisos Middle School agrees with me! To brief things up, most of the children agree with having a pool on the blacktop for P.E while several kids are nervous because it’s a new idea.
From another perspective, you may think like Ricardo Brito, “I’d like to have water sports on hot days, but we’ll need lots of money for lifeguards, coaches, construction workers and etcetera , right?” You may also think like a parent, in Norwalk, who claims that the economy is bad and the school can’t afford it. Personally, I think we all should pitch in and print out flyers for parents to sign up and promise to help and give some money. Some may think it’s just useless pitching in and may not even want to have the water games/pool. “Most kids can get sick and/or allergies,” says my brother. “They can slip and get hurt by the edges of the pool, they can drown also.” A reasonable person can assume that there are also many negatives in this topic.
It makes good sense that this matter should not be disregarded because most teachers also agree. Mr. Manso from Los Alisos Middle School thinks we should have some water sports. “If we add water sports, then the kids’ll have a variety of sports . They will be attracted to P.E more.” In a research found on the Internet 40% parents disagreed with swimming in school and 60% agreed to this. Anyhow, swimming and other water sports can be more soothing and relaxing than running and other sports, they also make you more active!
Do you care about yourself or your kids? Do you realize how they’re getting tortured under the sun? If we help and pitch in, then the kids will feel more positive towards Physical Education. So please help me write a letter to our respected principal and involve parents in this great act! Thanks parents, kids and other readers.
