Everest students got a lesson in water safety from Goldfish Swim School on May 17. Bubbles the fish made a special appearance, and the “Water Watchers” helped our students remember the rules for water safety with the following acronym:
W = Wear your life jacket!
A = If you see somebody in trouble, Act! Remember, “throw” (the life preserver) but “don’t go”.
T = Take swimming lessons. Swimming lessons can help you be a safer swimmer, and have some fun at the same time.
E = Educate yourself on swim safety skills, such as learning how to tread water, and how to roll over and float to catch your breath.
R = Respect the rules, and “play it cool”. Pay attention to the posted rules and listen to the lifeguards and your parents. They are there to keep you safe!
