Swanson Elementary School December 2022
NO SCHOOL DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 4 WINTER BREAK - SCHOOL RESUMES JANUARY 5, 2023
Swanson's Slice of Pie fundraiser
Check out the Lost and Found before it disappears at the end of the year!!
Please make sure to mark all jackets, coats, hats, gloves, lunch pails, backpacks and other student items with their NAME in case they are left around the building or out at recess. This helps us get them back to the right owner.
The school has a Lost and Found that students are welcome to look through if something is missing. All items will disappear during winter break!
First Friday Spirit Day!
Each first Friday of the month is Swanson Spirit Day. On this day we all wear our Swanson logo wear or school colors, blue and white, to show our spirit. We begin our day by saying the Swanson Pledge together. It’s a fun day filled with terrific Swanson spirit! The First Friday Spirit Day is Friday, January 6th!
Recess and Falling Temperatures
Recess will be held outdoors, except when extended exposure to the elements is inadvisable or when the Principal determines it to be otherwise unsafe. Students will not have outdoor recess when either the air temperature or wind chill factor is 10 degrees fahrenheit or lower.
Reminders about Drop-off & Pick-up:
The Bus Lane is reserved for our buses and vans while dropping off and picking up students. Please do not park in this lane unless you are directed by a Swanson staff member. Additionally, parents are to remain inside vehicles during drop-off and pick-up. If you need to assist your child in getting in and out of the car, please park in the parking lot. Thank you for being safe and courteous during arrival and dismissal times!
22-23 Swanson School Spelling Bee
Central High Math Contest Results
Congratulations to the following WCS team that earned 2nd place overall in the Central High Math Contest on Nov. 10. In addition to the team award, Kelvin W. (8th grade at WMS) earned first place in the individual competition and Florence Y. (7th grader at WMS) earned 6th place. The WMS team also earned 1st place in the buzzer round!
Digital Dozen Winners
Remember to set up your child's lunch account through My School Bucks. This is an easy way to add money for a la carte items or extra portions, for your child's favorite lunch items. They will thank you for that. When setting up your child(ren) you will need their student ID, which you can obtain by calling the front office.
