Letter to the "Super"

To Mr. Superintendent,
I am writing this letter to you to ask for funds for a new gaming system that can be very beneficial to the students of this district. I am a physical educator in this school district, and my goal is to get as much activity in our student’s daily routines as possible! It is a stressful job, especially in our society today, where video gaming took over vigorous physical play. However, there has recently been a large wave of exercise gaming systems that have created new gaming ways that have a large physical demand to them. This is now more appealing to students and attracts more interest to our younger generations. I feel that this is the savior for our younger generations well being. It is something that should be embraced.
Studies have shown that video gaming system has increased the level of physical activity in our children’s daily lives. This daily routine of exercise will increase the health of our students as well as give them a social activity that they can carry for the rest of their lives. not only that other countries, such as Norway, are using this for reasons beyond just physical activity! They are using this system for students to build their mental health. They also use it to help their students build their stress management and lower depression rates! There are some sites that i would like you to take a look at like positivegaming.com. I went to an expo with exergame systems and the feedback from the students was unbelievable. the excitement and enthusiasm from the students was incredible!

Having said that, the I Dance gaming system is going to be visiting our school in a couple of weeks. I have been keeping in contact with them for a while now and they decided to come visit our school to show the system. It has been approved by the school already. I would like for you to join our session as the creators of the game will show us how to play the game and show us different ways to play the game!
I have put together fundraising plans to raise the money to purchase this game. I have also talked to our neighboring districts and they are interested in buying this system as well. We might be able to work out a sharing plan with the system. Well, I am getting ahead of myself. After you see how the gaming system works, and the student’s response to the game, we can then talk further on the considerations of purchasing this system. You can contact me at martino.sottile@gmail.com.

Thank you,
Martino Sottile
