Hancock Elementary School and Toby Wells YMCA have teamed together to provide a unique learning experience for our students. During the year every student receives YMCA Play on school campus, swimming and gymnastic classes taught at the YMCA by the YMCA staff. The classes are during the regular school day and the students ride a bus to the Toby Wells facility for swimming and gymnastic lessons. The program goals include:
1). Giving children an opportunity to experience swimming and symnastics lessons in a physical setting unavailable at school.
2). Creating lessons that are recognized by the school district and are counted as physical education credits per the school and State requirements.
3). Increase students' social skills, self confidentce, and physical fitness awareness.
4). Provide students with positive role models.
