Did you know there are free swim lessons here in New York City?
They are offered by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. All around the city, public schools give free swim lessons! Swimming is important because you might drown if you fall into a pool. All ages can do them and there are classes for any level swimmer.
I took them this summer and the instructors are nice and took time to teach me what I needed to know. There are lots of levels, and they go up to Level 4. They were very fun. You can take them all summer. The web address is www.NYC govParks.org. You need to sign up in early June to get a slot so don’t forget.
See you at the pool! Cannonball!!!!!
