“There is nothing that gives a parent more satisfaction than seeing their children grow and providing them with opportunities to develop new skills. For parents who do not have the necessary financial resources, access to programs that give their children that opportunity to grow could be a desire that is unlikely to be fulfilled. The Learn to Swim Program allowed students from District 112, Highwood residents to enroll in swim lessons. These children not just learned how to develop a new skill; they also learned how to socialize.” 

– District 112 Engagement Specialist
