Principal’s Corner

As you are enjoying your summer you may see all the sales for school supplies. This may make you wonder, what School Supplies Do I Need?

Every year the teachers provide Switzer students with a recommended supply list for each grade level. (Click here for supply list)

 Although the district provides funds that allows our school to buy the supplies your child may need to be successful, if you would like your child to have their own personal supplies, please feel free to purchase from the list below. PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS IS A GENERAL GRADE LEVEL LIST. SPECIFIC LISTS WILL BE SHARED BY TEACHERS ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Some grade levels have also asked for resources such as Kleenex that could be used to supply the whole class. Please do not feel obligated to purchase any of the items listed for your child’s grade. Thank you and enjoy your summer!

 

The Switzer Elementary community is committed to helping all students become responsible life-long learners by maintaining a safe, positive environment that encourages individuals to reach their full potential.

March Is Reading Month

Academic Blitz”Reading is Awesome” is the 2017 March is Reading month theme at Switzer. We started our reading month with our reading assembly today. Information has been sent home but is also included in this newsletter. Students will be bringing home their packet with reading goals and a log sheets to be turned in on Mondays, starting March 13. Students who meet their goals and turn in their log sheets will be awarded tickets/legos and be entered into drawings for access passes to the Lego Garage or Slurpees. If we hit our school goal we will have a special visit from our “lego rescue heros” from the police, fire and homeland security. Don’t forget family reading night planned for March 24, at 6:30pm. All prizes and events have been funded by our supportive PTO and thank you Switzer reading committee for your hard work and great ideas!
