Music Programs

Bravo to our 2nd-4th grade students on each of their Music Performances this month! They wowed us with their strong voices that carried throughout the auditorium. Thank you to Dr. Fuller for her preparation, planning and practice of these two performances. Well done to all of you!

Veterans' Day Celebration

Thank you to all who came out in the cold to recognize our Veterans and Military Personnel today! Our Superstars cheered, created and wrote in honor of these men and women who have served or are currently serving our country. We value your service and sacrifice, and we salute today and always!

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.

Notes from Swanson Community Club

Feb 3 - Talent Show Help Needed

We're in search of a couple Swanson Parents willing to lead the planning of the Talent Show this year. It is currently scheduled for Feb 3 at 6pm in the WMS Auditorium. If this event is important to you and you'd like to see it continue, let us know! It may not happen this year without your support (and that's ok if we're all just too tapped out). Email or text Jacque Torson (afjacque@gmail.com or 719-332-5009) if you'd like to help or chat about it.
