Dear Swanson Families,

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I know I speak for our entire staff when I say we can't wait to see our students face to face this year! Please know that as we move into this school year, we will continue to prioritize the safety and well being of our community. If you have any questions regarding our district's safety procedures, don't hesitate to give us a call. We're here to help!

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

Our teachers have attended in-depth training preparing for the implementation of our new literacy resources. Our knowledge based curriculum, Wit and Wisdom, will be used in grades K-5. In addition, we've adopted the supplemental resources, Geodes (decodable, leveled-readers) for K-2 and Heggerty Phonological Awareness tools for K-5. Families will be provided opportunities to learn more about these amazing resources over the course of the year. 

Our school theme for the year is The Time to be Awesome is NOW! This is a quote that you will likely hear repeated over and over. The quote was selected as a statement to empower our students to put forth effort, be willing to engage in productive struggle in order to learn more deeply, and to realize there's no time like the present to bring their best!

We will also embrace our district's theme of #BetterTogether. There's no doubt the last two years have demonstrated the truth of this phrase. To continue growing in this area, we are looking to expand the ways in which we involve families in learning and celebrating students. 

Additional things to get excited about: two NEW playgrounds, a terrific new PTA board, our STEM lab back at 100% capacity, amazing staff members, free breakfast and lunch for all students, 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!
Go Colts!
