Hi! I’m Puppypaw! If you’re like me, you like to swim. Next door to our school there is a pool called Big Stacy. It has lap swimming lanes, a kiddy pool (shallow area), a deep end, and lots of fun. If you go to Travis Heights Elementary, in 1st grade you get free swim lessons in the spring. While being escorted by a lifeguard, you learn all the rules of the pool and how to swim in the shallow end. If you’re an expert at swimming, you can do diving in the the deep area. In the swim lessons they learn safety rules and how to save someone if they are drowning. They also teach strokes like the backstroke, freestyle and some other strokes. They also teach the standing dive, procedures like staying calm if you’re drowning and how to save someone if they are drowning.
