Lower schoolers get a chance to try out the pool

Lower Schoolers Plunge into the Pool

Beasley students are finally getting their chance to splash around during the swim unit in the Lower School’s physical education classes. The 2nd graders were the first from the Lower School to experience first-hand the new Steward Family Aquatic Center and William R. Orthwein Sr. Pool. During their time in the shallow end, students learned the fundamentals of swimming—including stroke technique and kicking. Overall, the swimming unit made a big splash with the 2nd graders, and the P.E. teachers look forward to more units in the coming weeks.
