Swimming at the Middle School
The students at Wayne Middle School had a treat the last Friday in August. At 10:00 they walked down to the Bicknell pool and had an opportunity to have an after school swim. Mr. Peterson (Wayne Middle School’s Principal) used the time to welcome the students back from a long hot summer and to celebrate the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The students had an enjoyable splashing each other and trying to get the teachers wet. All of the teachers were in attendance to supervise and life guards were present and extra attentive. Sherry Ellett, our Art Teacher, was the primary life guard. In the next month the middle school will use the pool as part of its physical education program. The students will go to the pool during their PE class and learn about pools safely and the basics of safe swimming. This activity was a great way to start the school year and we are looking forward to a lot of fun activities sandwiched between days of high-quality classroom instruction.
