Welcome Letter

Dear Swansfield Families,

Greetings to you from the Swansfield PTA!

We hope that you have enjoyed your summer! It is hard to believe that the new school year is already here! This year brings some exciting changes to us. As a school, we are welcoming our new principal, Mrs. Maisha Strong. She brings over 16 years of experience and is excited to start at Swansfield. You have an all new PTA board of Mariah Tavary, Robin Shipman, Julie Hellmer, Cerece Rennie Murphy, Emily Steele and Sue Chase. And we are anticipating a school renovation starting in the spring of 2016. We are all excited about the upcoming school year and would like to share a few topics with you.

The Carson Reading Room is looking for volunteers.  If you are interested, please e-mail carsonreading@swansfieldpta.org for more information.

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/.
