Deer Park Educates Swimmers for Success


District special needs students in grades Kindergarten through eighth are participating in an in-district aquatics program in which they visit the high school pool and become familiar with the water and swimming safety.

Before entering the pool, students are instructed on how to properly enter and exit the water, as well as the correct arm and leg movements of swimming. The students also practice proper breathing exercises. Once in the water, lifeguards and teachers assist them as they float, layback, sit and swim, navigating their way through the pool.
