Hage offers its 3rd- through 5th-grade students swim lessons as part of its comprehensive physical education program. The students walk a little more than a mile to Ned Baumer Aquatic Center for a half-hour class three days a week over a period of five weeks. Students are taught water safety and basic swim skills. Fifth graders who complete the swim lessons can participate in the Prevent Drowning Foundation’s Bridge to Beach field trip to a local beach. Lifeguards give the students beach and ocean safety instruction, like how to recognize rip currents.
