Water Safety Instructor Course

The preschoolers and toddlers celebrated Tu B’Shvat, the birthday of the trees, last month. All the classes had fresh fruit and sang songs that we had learned from our music teacher, Miss Beth. The children planted orange, lemon, and parsley seeds inside the classroom and are documenting the changes as the seeds grow. The children are enjoying winter but dreaming of spring.

Are you interested in becoming a Red Cross Certified Swim Instructor? The course will be on Monday evenings beginning February 24—March 24. Along with training, candidates will be required to complete 6 hours of practical teaching during JCC swim lessons. Contact Kelly with questions and for registration information.
