Spring 2024 SLMS Swim Club

South Lake Middle School is offering a Spring 2024 SLMS swim club.

We are working on the details, but if you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Your SLMS student does not need to know how to swim but needs the desire to try!

The plan is to leave SLMS on a South Lake school bus at 3:20 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and take the bus to the high school pool.

Your middle school student must be picked up at 4:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the season at door #5 on the SLHS driveway.

Let's have another great week!

Mr. Bruce
