Carson Elementary Students Make a Splash

At Carson Elementary School every child learns every day. Having well-rounded and healthy students is important for classroom success as well as attendance rates. In addition to improving academic skills, Carson students also cultivate their physical education skills.

This year nearly 450 students participated in the Mission Valley YMCA’s Physical Education Outreach Program, providing them the opportunity to engage in free dance, soccer, and swim lessons during the school day. Carson is fortunate to have a long-standing partnership with the Mission Valley YMCA. In addition to the P.E. Outreach program, this unique opportunity provides our school with excellent childcare and after school programs such as Prime-Time and PRYDE. Students in first through fifth grade recently completed swim lessons focused on basic water safety and swim technique.

A special school assembly will wrap up the school year in aquatic style as every student receives a new swimsuit courtesy of a generous YMCA donor. For more information, visit or contact Principal Joe Frescatore at
