Update from Mr. Palmer

Hello Switzer,

A few updates before we dig out of the snow and into the cookies!

Thank you to everyone for supporting our community and local families through our student council. Food donations were shared with "Serve Local", the US Marines picked up BOXES of new toys in our "Toys' for Tots" collection and we raised over 3000$ in a team effort with 5 other elementary buildings to support the Anthony Debord memorial.

Author/Illustrator visits Switzer

Shelley Johannes visited Switzer on December 2 and all students had a chance to meet and work with her. Students were so excited that they were asking for her autograph! Over the past month classes were able to share Shelly's picture book and her chapter book "Beatrice Zinker Upside Down Thinker". Her chapter book is the first in a series of three. If you are looking for possible gift ideas this could be an option. Thank you, Mrs. Teasel, for organizing this great event and PTO for supporting us.

Brrr…children are expected to participate in outdoor recess

Recess is an important part of the school day. It gives the children a chance to release some of their pent-up energy, and clear their minds for the remainder of the school day.

All students are expected to go out for recess, unless we have a doctor's note saying they must stay inside. This is true even during warmer months.

At Switzer, students will go out for recess whenever the wind-chill is 10 degrees or higher. We use weather.com to determine the wind-chill.

Proper clothing for outside recess is a necessity. Children should dress warmly with gloves, scarves, boots, coats and hats. Children may not remain in the classroom when their class goes out for recess, since the teachers go outside also.

Please remember we all shop at Amazon, Kohls and Target. Putting initials on glove tags, coat tags and hat tags help keep the lost and found from over flowing. The weather has been kind but Michigan weather has a funny sense of humor.
