Water And Wheels

What do swimming and cycling have in common? Well, they are both part of the Cambridge Public Schools 4th grade Physical Education program.

For their water safety classes, students are transported to the War Memorial Pool located at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School. All fourth graders participate in the eight sessions with ability ranging from beginning swimmers to advanced.

The eight week session focuses on skill refinement and on water safety for all.

From beginner to advanced, students learn proper bicycle safety. We also work with the Cambridge Police and Community Police who provide assistance along with our Physical Education teachers.
