Rope World is a popular physical education program at Rocky Mountain Elementary in Longmont, Colorado. This program was developed by Mr. Higgins, retired physical education teacher at Rocky Mountain Elementary. This program involves swinging, crawling and climbing on, over and through ropes and other obstacles. Rope World helps children develop self-confidence, agility and strength as they play freely in a supervised environment.
This program is offered as a part of the curriculum at Rocky Mountain Elementary, and the after-school program is co-ordinated by Community Education. Donita Johnson is the current physical education teacher at Rocky Mountain Elementary. Mrs. Johnson is assisting Mr. Higgins in running the after school program. Rope World is set up and open to the public for two week sessions several times throughout the school year and once during the summer. Please refer to the calendar page for upcoming sessions.
