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!

Veterans' Day Celebration

Please join us in honoring our Swanson Community Veterans this Veterans Day with a reverse Veterans Day Parade on Thursday, November 11th from 10:30-10:50 am! Please invite your family members, neighbors, and friends who are past and current service men and women of all branches of our Armed Services to join us on this special day. Our students and staff will be lining the Swanson parking lot and drive to welcome our honorees as they drive through our cue.

On this day all members of the Swanson Community of Learners will be wearing red, white, and blue. 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!

Thank you for your assistance in keeping Swanson's long standing traditions of celebrating and thanking our veterans.

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 3rd.
