HORNETS LEARNS TO SWIM
Students from Mrs. Oakley’s class learned to swim at the local YMCA. They joined in with Mr. Shelton’s 2nd grade class to learn this important life skill. Each student learned the basics of swimming, as well as important water safety rules.
The swim lessons lasted the entire week. The students started out by getting comfortable in the water and with the life guards. By the end of the week, each student completed a swim test in which they had to jump into the deep end of the pool, tread water, and swim to the side of the pool. These brave boys and girls gave it their all and earned a certificate for completing the program.
Mrs. Oakley and her students would like to thank the YMCA and the life guards for allowing her students to participate in this wonderful program.
