Swimming begins this week for 2D

Classes will be starting their aquatics program during PE beginning the week of October 18th, and will go for 3 weeks finishing on November 5th. There will be another 5-week unit later in the year.

This is part of the Physical Education program; therefore your child will be swimming on their scheduled Physical Education days during their regular P.E. class.

Students need to have the following equipment:


  • Swimming suit (girls-one piece)
  • Swim cap – mandatory for all elementary school students. These may be purchased from most sports stores or from the Booster Club. If students forget their cap they will be expected to wear one provided by the school.
  • Towel
  • Plastic bag for wet gear
  • Goggles (optional)- We do not have goggles for students to use.

Mathematics - Straws, straws, straws!
