HNote-We originally ran this program for May is National Water Safety Month, but please share the video, activities and songs for educating your childern on water safety for this summer.
You, your child will be exposed to the water. Even though the pool is closed, we want to work with you to continue your child’s water safety education. May is National Water Safety Month, now through May 31, we will be having our Virtual Water Safety Event.
National Water Safety Month: May is National Water Safety Month and the Mount Rainier Pool wants to ensure that every member of your family becomes water competent. This means being water smart, having swimming skills and knowing how to help others.
