Our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students participated in their first week of swim lessons. This is the third year that we have been able to incorporate into our weekly PE curriculum. Thank you Mayor Crain for allowing us to use the pool and the Community Foundation for their initial purchase of all of our swimsuits. Mrs. Pineda, our licensed swim instructor, Mrs. Pinkerton, our school nurse, Faith Barnes and Madison Karrfalt, our certified lifeguards, and the classroom teachers did a wonderful job with the students this week!
This is an amazing opportunity for our students to learn lifesaving techniques and to become more comfortable in the water.
