SAFETY WEEK DATES
Monday, January 18 – Saturday, January 23
DID YOU KNOW…
That 10 people drown every day in the United States? Did you know the leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1 – 5 is drowning? Those are pretty sobering statistics. A big part of our mission and curriculum is teaching our students to be respectful of all bodies of water and give them some helpful tools to use if trouble should arise.
OUR MAIN FOCUS
- Educate our students on the use of life jackets | Ages 18 Months & Older
- How to react in the water fully clothed | Ages 18 Months & Older
- How to react to swimming without googles | Ages 3 Yrs Old & Older — optional
We will run a normal lesson plan during this week. We highly encourage everyone to participate and wear clothes on the appropriate week. If the child is uncomfortable with having clothes and shoes on, they can remove them after Safety Circles/Polar Bear Floats are completed or can just perform the lesson in normal attire.
WHAT TO WEAR
- Old clothes you don’t mind getting wet and possibly fade
- Pants or shorts
- Old tennis shoes
- Please be sure to wear your swimsuit underneath your clothing this week
