PE students at HU offer classes for home schools

Huntington University's physical education students will again offer a physical education program for home-schooled children ages 3 through fifth grade this spring.

Children will be placed into one of four developmental levels: preschool (ages 3 and 4 and one adult must participate with the child), grades K-1, grades 2-3 and grades 4-5. The nine class sessions will be offered from March to May.

Class time is from 1:15 to 2 p.m. in the fieldhouse of the university's Merillat Physical Education and Recreation Complex. The dates for the sessions are March 7, 14 and 21, April 4, 11, 18 and 25, and May 2 and 9.

This service is available to all area home-schooled children in preschool and elementary grades, including students from Huntington and surrounding counties. All families not attending the fall semester program are asked to come 15 minutes early on March 7 to register. Returning students need not re-register.

The class is free to all participants.

Huntington University students conducting the elementary physical education class are either physical education majors or elementary education majors. Curriculum development and supervision of the classes are provided by Dr. Jody Davenport, assistant professor of physical education.
