Adapted Physical Education (APE) classes, both in the gym and in the pool, are available for all children enrolled ages two (2) through twenty-one (21). Toddlers access the gym one time per week and swimming approximately one time per month.  School-age children, as identified in their IEP's, can receive APE in the gym and pool both one time per week. The Adapted Physical Education Instructor plans a variety of gross motor activities and games in the gym, and as a Life Guard/Adapted Aquatic Instructor teaches water adjustment, swimming skills and movement goals and objectives.
Board Eligible Family Swim Nights are scheduled periodically throughout the school year. Please call Debbie at Happy Day School at 330-678-2400 to sign up. A Lifeguard will be on duty. An adult must accompany each swimmer. Check Happy Day School's Calendar of Events for dates and times.
