Happy New Year from the PTA!

It is amazing that half the school year is already over! Our principal, Mrs. Strong, has settled in and is doing a great job leading our students and faculty.   We hope you have been able to meet her personally. As our school prepares for the renovation that will start later this year, we wanted to update you on all the events the PTA is preparing for the second half of the school year.

Carson Room – Would you like to encourage children to develop a desire to read? Do you have about 30 minutes in your day that you could spare? If you answered yes to these questions, the Carson Reading Room needs you! We are fortunate to have a volunteer-based room that promotes leisure reading in our children’s lives. Please consider volunteering to supervise a group in the Carson Reading Room. See the attached sign-up sheet and if you see a time that works for you, please contact Amy at carsonreading@swansfieldpta.org

Fitness Fridays/Striders is currently seeking volunteers to help out at recess on Fridays. Volunteers encourage students to run/walk the 1/4 mile track behind the school. The kids very much enjoy receiving chains and tokens for every mile they complete. Volunteers are needed to help encourage students, keep track of mileage and hand out chains and tokens. If you are available during your child’s recess time, please consider volunteering. Sign up now at:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B45ACA928A64-fitness/.
