Physical education teacher, Stephanie Giufre, developed a water-safety swimming lesson to integrate into the fifth-grade physical education curriculum. On Friday, June 21, students traveled to the high school pool chaperoned by their teachers. They were kept safe by lifeguards Megan Donnelly, a high school PE teacher, Holly Pason, a third grade teacher, and Maria Fenfert, Otisville’s music/band teacher.
