Does your GS'er get any kind of swimming lessons through the school?

Last year Jay's Kindergarten class had a week of them at the end of the year, this year the first grade is going for a week I believe the week after next. He's soooo excited, he loves to swim! Our school doesn't have a pool so they drive them to the ymca.

We don't have lessons through the school, but my kids take them privately. They have been on the swim team since they turned 5

They do them towards the end of the year. Both girls are also doing private lessons. They do a lesson every day for a week at school.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

Not through the school no. We did private lessons with a couple in our neighborhood that does them in the summertime. But the school doesn't offer anything like that.

No, not through the school. When I was in third grade I remember we had one week of lessons...M-F for like an hour a day. It wasn't enough to learn how to swim, but it did teach some water safety rules and things like that.

My first and second grader are taking private lessons this year. They very okay swimmers this past summer, and my goal is to have them be good swimmers by next summer.

Not at school. Both girls had them at the local pool.
