Learning to swim over the summer is a skill that is coming into shape for 50 rising Terraset Elementary School students.
The Summer School & Pool program is the product of a partnership between the school and Reston Association. It uses funds from Friends of Reston, an organization that performs educational and charitable projects in concert with RA.
Students in the program walk to Ridge Heights pool together on Tuesday and Thursdays to navigate new waters. For most of the students, swimming is a new activity.
Students are placed into groups and rotate between stations throughout each session through a variety of lessons, practice and free swimming.
They’re under the guidance of Terraset ES math resource teacher Suzanne White, who told FFXnow that she saw a need in the community that inspired her to push for the partnership.
“I found a generous group in Friends of Reston who took a chance on it with funding. To say it’s been the highlight of these kids’ summer is not an exaggeration,” White said.
Volunteers from the community are also on site to help with the classes.
Staff for Reston Association were not immediately available for comment.
