Pass Christian Parents Go Above and Beyond in P.E. Class With Their Kids
Some Pass Christian parents are recovering from a work out after joining their kids in P.E. class at Pass Christian Elementary School Tuesday, but alongside their children, they proved they had stamina and even showed off their exercise skills.
Students filed into their P.E. class headed up by Coach Payton Reagan Tuesday morning, but it wasn’t just any ordinary day. ” The Active Schools Program started this a couple of years ago. It’s of course, Bring Your Parent to P.E. Week. It kind of excited me when I found out about it. It’s a movement to get parents involved in physical education, but at the same time, we want parents to get involved in the school setting as well,” said Coach Payton Ragon, a Pass Christian Elementary School P.E. Teacher.
And did they ever get involved. The parents proved they were not content sitting on the sidelines in the gym. Dad Derek Dominguez was in over his head at times, but had his daughter, third grader Carley, by his side for support. ” It is really important. I really liked it. This is the first time we’ve done it. She always wants to play at the house so I brought her to school and we got to play at school, Derek Dominguez said.
All week long, Pass Christian parents are invited to come out and work out with their children, and it isn’t just about physical education. It’s also about strengthening their relationship. “They don’t get to experience school, or school activities, with a parent, for us to actually be able to come in and see what they do every day, I think as a bond, that really helps bring that together and experience the day together,” said Tony Bond who joined his daughter Claire in P.E. class. It’s the second time around for Tony Bond and his daughter Claire, who says this year her dad passed the class with flying colors, an A, in fact.
