Huntington University offers homeschool gym classes

Huntington University students are again offering a homeschool physical education program this fall.

The program is open to children in kindergarten through fifth grade, with a special preschool class for children ages 3 and 4.

Children will split into one of four developmental levels: preschool (ages 3 and 4), grades K-1, grades 2-3 and grades 4-5.

The nine class sessions will be offered from October to December. Class time is from 1:15 to 2 p.m. in the fieldhouse of the university's Merillat Complex.

The dates for the sessions are Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31, Nov. 7, 14 and 21, and Dec. 5.

This service is available to all area homeschooled children in preschool and elementary grades, including students from Huntington and surrounding counties.

Preschool children must be accompanied by a parent, and the parent needs to be prepared to participate along with their child.

All families are asked to come on Oct. 3 at 1 p.m. to complete the registration forms. Past participants will need to 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 recreation and sports management.
