Dear CTAHPERD Members:
As President of the Connecticut Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (CTAHPERD), I would like to personally extend an invitation to your school to participate in the 26th anniversary of Project A.C.E.S. (All Children Exercising Simultaneously) on May 7, 2014. Project A.C.E.S. has been held annually since 1989.  At 10 a.m. on May 7th, millions of students from all over the world will exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits in what has been billed as “The World’s Largest Exercise Class”. 

The first one hundred schools to register their event with CTAHPERD by the April 15th deadline will receive a banner to commemorate their participation.  WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY 20 LEFT!
Your school can register with Diane Wright by email- This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Please provide your school’s full address, phone number, email and contact person so we can properly record your event. Reminder, teachers should not request banners through the Project A.C.E.S. program, but through Ms. Wright’s email. Banners will be mailed out early in May.  Thank you so much for your attention to this health promoting activity.


Bryan Plona

CTAHPERD President
