Katie's Spring portfolio

March 11, 2015

Dear Mr. Sjogren,

    I am so excited for Spring Break and it's almost here! Because of that, I have one small question for you. Can we wear shorts on Friday, March 13th. I have many reasons for why I think we should be able to wear shorts on Friday. With shorts on we can get more exercise outside, so that we don't get overheated and that after school sports will be easier to get ready for. In this letter, I will explain more reasons for this idea.

    With shorts we can get more exercise, According www.choosemyplate.gov you should have at least 60 minutes of exercise a day and we don't want to spend 60 minutes outside in long pants! In shorts we can run and jump easily but in pants you can't do that so easily . Also according to www.choosemyplate.gov, young children you have to make sure they have fun when they exercise. Young children won't have fun with long pants on!

    If we wear shorts we will not get over heated, According www.betterhealth.vic.gov some illnesses caused by over heating are rash, cramps, and heat stroke that can kill you. Also we have our whole lives to live and we don't want to die at 11,12 and 13 years old! One of the most common people to get heart related illnesses from over heating is young children and heart illnesses can kill you. This is also from www.betterhealth.vic.gov. Also I don't think you would want to have kids going home with rashes, cramps, or heat stroke.

    After school sports will be easier to get ready for, if we are late to sports practice we will get less exercise. Sometimes when you are late the couch will make you run a lot and when you're game comes up you won't be able to play because you will be so sore from running! Also we don't have to worry about changing after school.

    We should be able to wear shorts on Friday, March 13th. With shorts we can get more exercise, if we wear shorts we will not get overheated, after school sports will be easier to get ready for. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule! You are the greatest principal in the world!

Sincerely

Katie Birzer
