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.

Santa Land is Coming

It’s that time again…Santa Land! Santa Land is a student only Santa Shop which allows our children to shop for all those special people in their life. All items are $2 and gift wrapping is included. Santa Land items are being supplied by “Fun Services” in Bellvue Michigan. We look forward to working with them. Your child will bring home more information in December.

We need volunteers! Santa Land won’t run without parent involvement! This year, Santa Land will be December 13th thru December 16th. Setup will take place on Monday, December 12th. Parents are welcome to volunteer for as many or as few shifts as their schedule allows. A schedule and sign up genius are in the works and will be shared soon.

Please note this event is CASH ONLY.
