The YMCA is working with the Newton School District and Newton Christian School to offer the Safety Around Water (SAW) program in our community. All second grade children within the Newton community will be offered this opportunity!
Our commitment is to provide the SAW program free of charge to every second grader in the Newton community. The program will consist of eight 30-minute swim lessons that will focus on various safety around water skills to help develop the aquatic skill level of each second grader in the program.
Both the Newton School District and the Newton Christian School are also fully committed to the SAW program. They will provide time out of the school day in addition to the educator’s time, guaranteeing this wonderful opportunity to each second grade child.
