Posted on 9/30/2013 7:08:54 AM

The Health and Physical Education Department (HPED) started up its wellness program, the Homeschool Physical Education Program, for local homeschooling families again on September 26, 2013, in Zink Hall. 

The program is designed to promote physical activity and positive social interaction for local homeschooling children. There are nearly 120 children currently enrolled ranging from pre-K through 12th grade, with a growing waiting list of interested families.

Students within the HPED department gain experience by facilitating activities such as physical education classes, swim lessons, and fitness training for the parents. The program is linked to multiple pedagogy courses which provide students with real life teaching experience and content application.
