TCS Receives Vidant Health Grant for Swimming
The Tyrrell County Schools Board of Education has received a Vidant Health Grant for the 2017-2018 school year. The Chowan Hospital Foundation (CHF) Community Benefits Grants (CBG) Review Committee and Vidant Health Foundation have approved funding in the amount of $4,000.00 to implement the Kinder Swim Program at Tyrrell Elementary School. This grant allows any kindergarten student to participate in basic swimming and water safety lessons with a certified swimming instructor free of charge. Tyrrell County Schools is supporting this year’s Kinder Swim program that will serve close to 40 students. Students ride buses to school and then go with their classroom teacher to the 4-H pool for swimming lessons with Brooke Jones. We are very excited about this program and we appreciate the leadership of our Kindergarten teachers.
