Dear Swanson Families,

We have so much to be excited about this year...

We have revamped our positive behavior system with the new theme, Be Your Own HERO. Students will earn pompoms individually and as classrooms for exhibiting Honesty, Empathy, Respect, and Own it actions and behaviors. See if you can catch your kiddo demonstrating HERO behaviors at home too.

It's year two of our Wit and Wisdom implementation. Students study four topics in great depth over the course of the year to build content knowledge and enhance literacy skills. Our students showed tremendous growth last year and we can't wait to build on that success. Be sure to ask your students what they are exploring in literacy!

We are also working on helping families connect to what's happening in classrooms through our family RISE nights. These evenings are a chance to examine your student's data, see a lesson modeled in the classroom, find out how to practice a skill at home with your student, and an opportunity to connect with other families during a catered dinner! Our first RISE night is September 22nd, followed by one January 19th. We hope to see you there!

Additional things to get excited about: an AMAZING PTA, our state of the art STEM lab, after-school clubs and activities like Girls on the Run, free breakfast, committed staff members, and the list goes on and on. It's definitely going to be a terrific year around here!

Swanson is a special, special place, and we are so happy to have you as part of our community! If we can be of service in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out. 
 
Go Colts!
