Second Graders Make a BIG SPLASH!!!

By Xander Montford

Thanks to Nurse Anita and Mr.Lawry the second graders are swimming at the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center. During the next four Friday afternoons CES students will have a ½ hour swim lesson and 1½ hours of free swim. This amazing program is paid for with grant funds and funds from the Central’s PTO. There is no charge to CES students. Any student who can swim the length of the pool passes a swimming test.  Some students get really excited when they pass the swimming test!

I interviewed three second graders about the swim program.  Jacob said, “he likes the swimming lessons.”

Daxton and Ryan exclaimed, “they like to go under water and jump into the pool.”
