Sink or Swim 2021

Sink or Swim


Sink or Swim is a program specifically designed to help MGM freshman begin their Viking voyage and to aid in the transition from middle school to high school.  The participants (swimmers) will:

  • Familiarize themselves with the school campus.
  • Develop friendships with peers.
  • Be mentored by upperclassmen (aka Lifeguards).
  • Improve teamwork abilities.
  • Understand the policies and procedures of MGM.
  • Explore extracurricular activities.
  • Learn practical tips for success.
  • Feel comfortable about beginning high school.
  • Have fun!

Students do not have to dress in school uniform; however, they must be dressed appropriately for school.  Each student will receive a t-shirt upon check in, and we encourage students to wear this t-shirt throughout the day.  Please do not wear tank tops or short shorts.  Shorts need to be at least mid-thigh or 3-inch shorts.  Shirts and bottoms should not have large holes.  Undergarments should not show.  Comfortable clothes and shoes are recommended for the day's activities.
