Posted September 12, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Students at Horace Mann Laboratory School continued the tradition of swim classes on August 28 at the Maryville Country Club pool. Fourth, fifth and sixth graders practiced holding their breath and going underwater during Physical Education Instructor Gina McNeese’s “cookie jar” exercise.

Horace Mann has offered its students swim lessons since at least the 1950s; starting at the Martindale pool, then the Foster Aquatic Center and now renting the Country Club pool for the first week of classes. Third graders also participated in the lessons.
