We Are Thankful!
At this time of Thanksgiving we, the Swanson Staff, want you to know how thankful we are for you, our Swanson families. Our Superstars are all learning and growing and the support you give both them and us is so appreciated. Please know your partnership with us does make a difference in your child’s success. We hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Picture Retake Day-Tuesday, November 7th
Did your smile look crooked? Did your eyes shut down? Did your hair stand up? Was the camera flash too bright? Did you forget your picture money? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have your school pictures retaken on Tuesday, November 7th. Return your whole picture package to Miss Wendelin. If you were absent on picture day or didn't get your picture taken, please let Miss Wendelin know so your picture can be included in the yearbook!
Veterans' Day Celebration
Please join us in honoring our Swanson Community Veterans this Veterans Day with a special school assembly on Friday, November 10th at 9:30 AM. Please talk with your Superstar about the veterans who may be in your family or circle of friends to invite them to our special event! On this day all members of the Swanson Community of Learners will be wearing red, white, and blue. Thank you for your assistance in keeping Swanson's long standing traditions of celebrating and thanking our veterans.
Veterans are welcome to arrive after 9:00 AM for coffee and rolls provided by our Swanson Community Club.
Keep Us from Getting Lost
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.
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, December 1st.

Digital Dozen Winner
The Excellence In Youth Team is excited to showcase Karnitha K. and Jaylen W. from Swanson as the most recent recipients of the Digital Dozen award for the 23-24 school year! The Digital Dozen award is presented to WCS students who earn 12 of the digital badges from the EY Website (ey.westside66.org), which is available to students district-wide. It takes self-motivation, grit, and determination to earn these badges and these star students should be proud of this accomplishment!
