Physical education program offered to homeschoolers

Huntington, Ind.-Huntington University's Department of Physical Education is offering a physical education program for elementary-aged homeschooled children.

The department will have nine sessions this fall. Class time is from 2:15 to 3:03 p.m. in the field house of the university's Merillat Complex for Physical Education and Recreation. The dates for the sessions are Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29; Nov. 5, 12 and 19; and Dec. 3.

This service is available to all area homeschooled children in elementary grades, including students from Huntington and surrounding counties. Families who have not previously been involved in the program are asked to come a few minutes early on Oct. 1 to complete the registration forms. This fall's curriculum will be an integration of social studies and physical education.

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 Jody Davenport, instructor in physical education.
