Students in grades Pre-K-5 at Savanna Ridge Elementary participated in a learning and enjoyable presentation on Water Safety. Presenters Bill and Jamie Wagner along with their special assistant “Bobber the Water Safety Dog from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers shared with the students the importance of these skills through cartoon videos, lecturing and interactive Q & A.
They emphasized learning to swim, to always wear a life jacket while swimming and boating, to always swim with a Buddy, when and where it is safe to dive, how to help someone that is in danger of drowning without endangering yourself, and to only swim when there is adult supervision. Physical Education Instructors Coach Eshleman and Coach Grant will follow through emphasizing these important tips in their P.E. classes with our students to ensure that they are safe in the swimming pools, waterways and beaches here in Florida.
