Attention 3rd -5th graders… Do you love learning new words?
If so, think about joining the Swanson Spelling Club and participating in the 2021-22 Spelling Bee!
The Club will meet on Friday mornings before school in the Swanson Library. The winners of the Swanson Spelling Bee will participate in the Elmbrook School District Spelling Bee in January at Wisconsin Hills Middle School (the date is to be determined).
K-2 FORENSICS EXPLORATION * TUESDAYS, OCTOBER 12 - DECEMBER 21 3:50 PM - 4:50 PM
Forensics (aka Speech and Debate) is the art of competitive Public Speaking, Theatre and Debate. For this age group we take a noncompetitive approach and give students an opportunity to immerse themselves into the comfortability of public speaking while still receiving the benefits of the activity like the older students.
Shhh... Swanson will celebrate National School Custodian Appreciation Day on Friday 10/1! If you wish to send a gift card, candy bar or a note; please have your student bring them to the office by Thursday 9/30! Our Lead Custodians are Ed Short (daytime) & Rick ‘Wags’ Wagner (evenings)
We are excited to offer Destination Imagination for Swanson elementary school students this year! In order to provide this opportunity to Swanson students, we will need parents to volunteer as Team Managers. The students of Team Managers will be guaranteed enrollment in DI. Training is available!
DI is an inquiry-guided group learning program whose mission is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Students will be placed on teams of 7 to solve open-ended challenges and present their solutions at a regional competition. With the guidance of Team Managers (parent volunteers), each team creates an action plan and works together to develop and create a solution to their challenge.
