The North County Recreation District’s 30th Annual Pool-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, February 22nd from 9 am to 1 pm. Join us to cheer on the swimmers as they rack up the laps and the dollars to support the swim program. This is a kid powered event, which raises a substantial amount of funds necessary to keep the NCRD/ Nehalem Elementary Swim Program afloat!
All proceeds from the Pool-A-Thon go directly towards the 2020/2021 NCRD/ Nehalem Elementary Swim Instruction/Water Safety Awareness Program which impacts the lives of all students, kindergarten through 5th grade, including the NKN District #56 Adaptive Swim Program.
SWIMMING POOL BUILT IN 1930……SCHOOL SWIM BEGINS
The proceeds from the NCRD Pool-a-thon support the NCRD/ Nehalem Elementary School Swim & Water Safety Awareness Program which has existed in some form since the 1930s.
At that time the school district was planning an addition to the school in Nehalem. The drowning of two local teenage boys prompted the community to ask the school district to add a natatorium. Even though it was during the great depression, there was overwhelming community support to teach every child how to swim to avoid future tragedies.
89 years later in this area surrounded by water & dominated by water related recreation, we continue to accomplish our mission of providing Swim Instruction & Water Safety to all Nehalem Elementary students. The goal has been to offer a safe environment where the students can learn to swim, & be educated in water safety, while instilling the value of swimming as a lifetime skill and healthy recreational activity. The skills they learn in the pool could save their life or the life of another.
The NCRD School Swim Program reaches out to every Nehalem Elementary Student Kindergarten through fifth Grade. This also includes the NKN District #56 adaptive Swim Program.
Historically our community has accomplished something extraordinary in financially sponsoring students who are swimming laps for dollars during pool-a-thon.
By pledging money, or making a donation to a student swimmer, you can help guarantee all the children will continue to benefit from this vital and historic program. We each can play an important role in maintaining our community’s essential values, and your generous investment in the Swim Program will make a direct and immediate impact.
