Transitions Foundation’s teacher Edson Lopez and class volunteer Marty Smith took the special education class in San Antonio on a field trip to the swimming pool on March 25th.
Family members of the students were also invited, and the community pool covered the cost for the majority of the students to enter.
For most of the of the students that attended, it was the first time that they had been swimming in their lives.
“It was a very interesting day. It was really neat to see the students with their parents and siblings learning to swim,” said Smith. “I think it was a great bonding experience, which is something we are constantly looking to see in families that have children with special needs.”
