CLIMBING PE: K - 2ND GRADE
Grades: Kindergarten - 2ND grade
5 Tuesdays during Ski- PE - $250
Tuition Assistance is available (see below)
Join Telluride Academy for 5 fun Tuesdays during SKI-PE. Students will be picked up at the Elementary School each morning and be escorted to the new Climbing Gym at the Telluride Middle/High School. They will also be escorted back to the Elementary Schcool at the end of each day by 3pm.
Half of the day will be spent enjoying an outdoor activity. We'll look at the forecast each to to decide if our outdoor actitivity will be in the morning or afternoon. We'll make snowmen, go on snowshoe hikes, spend one day learning how to Nordic Ski and a one day having a fun game of broom ball. When its simply too cold to be outside we'll spend our non-climbing time in the gym playing games that build strength and keep the students moving.
The other half of the day will be spent on our School's brand new climbing wall where we'll cover a wide variety of skills focusing on the basics of rock climbing. At this young age, students are not tracked in a “level” rather we make it fun for everyone incorporating games and off-wall exercises to keep the students engaged through our time with them.
Note: Please send your child daily with plenty of snacks, a water bottle, warm layers, and closed toed tennis shoes for their time on the wall and warm winter boots for our time outside.
