Teach Them To Swim Program

This Developmental swim program for Lenihan students is designed to acquaint swimmers with the pool and learn water adjustment. Float devices are used to encourage students towards water independence. Swimmers will move toward stroke independence and will swim several lengths of the pool unassisted when completed. Swimmers will learn personal safety skills in and around the water, including treading water, floating, swimming on front and back, jumping in the water and boating safety. Most importantly they will gain self confidence around the water and know how to be safe.

Associate Principal

Lenihan Intermediate School brings together students from all six district elementary schools for fifth and sixth grade, while still maintaining a small-school atmosphere through the use of neighborhoods.

At Lenihan students receive instruction in the core subjects of reading, language arts, social studies, math and science. Students also participate in physical education, vocal music and art. Students may choose to be involved in chorus, orchestra and band.

The transition from elementary to intermediate school is made easy through the many efforts of Lenihan staff. Principals and the school counselors visit elementary schools and talk with students and parent organizations and events like Parent Orientation, Parent Open House and Back to School Night help students and families feel comfortable in their new school.
