Each Spring, typically in April, our 1st grade students travel daily for 2 weeks to the Town Lake YMCA for swim lessons with Project S.A.F.E. (Safety, Aquatics, Fitness Education).
Mathews’ students are fortunate to participate in this free program with the YMCA, in partnership with Colin’s Hope. For more information please visit: https://www.austinymca.org/programs/project-safe
Please note: These swim lessons require significant parent involvement to help teachers get children in and out of their swimsuits in the locker rooms.
