The kindergarten class enjoyed swimming at The Bennington Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 27th. Their teacher, Kathleen Backus, started her career teaching swimming at the Rec Center, and said that this experience sparked her love of teaching. It’s important to her to introduce her students to local community resources, such as the Rec Center and to expose them to activities like swimming. Yesterday they learned about basic water safety and then had a blast swimming with Ms. Backus and numerous parent volunteers. Thank you to Teaching Assistant Jodi Breithaupt and School Counselor Pam Hubbs for sharing these photos!
