Swimming begins Sunday, November 19th!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Starting on Sunday, November 19th your son/daughter will be taking swimming lessons during their PE class.  The students will be in the pool under the supervision of a PE teacher, a swim instructor, and a lifeguard.  The last swim class will be on Wednesday, November 29th.

The swim program that we used is based off of the Canadian red cross.  The students will be learning a variety of water safety skills, as well as learning and performing some basic swim strokes.  Everyday students are required to bring a bathing suit, a swim cap, a pair of goggles, a towel, and a pair shoes that can be worn in the pool area (flip flops, sandals, crocs).  We also suggest that students bring a plastic bag for their wet clothes.

All students are required to swim during PE whether they are advanced or beginners.  Students will only be excused from swimming with a signed doctors note for any serious conditions.

We look forward to the seeing your children in the pool this year!
Sincerely,

Rob Calandra

PE Teacher
