Hollywood preschoolers enjoy new P.E. class

PE Class09HOLLYWOOD — The Hollywood Recreation Department is providing physical education classes to preschool students in the gym and on the ball field. Each class includes age-appropriate activities designed to build self-confidence, teamwork and coordination.

“We want to start them young and introduce them to the concept of being on a team,” said Richard Blankenship, Recreation director. “They learn it takes a whole group to succeed. And it’s good for nap time.”

Activities include hula hooping, kicking soccer balls and running a course while retrieving and shooting balls into tubes.

The classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
