The annual iSwim fundraiser brought more than 120 students to the Albany Community Pool on Saturday morning. Students raised money through pledges for each lap they swam. The funds will support grants for Greater Albany teachers.
Oak Elementary had the highest level of participation with over 40 students and a large staff cheering section. The Albany Public Schools Foundation issued a special thank you to Oak staff, who showed up wearing their t-shirts.
Students who were unable to participate but would like to swim for the foundation can come to a make-up day on Monday, Oct. 9, or Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 7 – 8 p.m.
Special thanks from the Albany Public School Foundation to all volunteers at the event: “We want to thank all the Greater Albany Public School employees who volunteered their time to count laps, help with the registration table, and for also cheering on their students as they swam. You are the ones who make this event successful every year.”
