Dear Switzer Families,

Thank you to the teachers, students and families  who are learning, planning, troubleshooting on the fly to recreate school in the virtual world. Remember this is a team effort and the only way through this is together.

Return to School:

For those of us in the remote environment the district is looking at bringing  students back in small groups. For example, pre-school has returned and communication will be coming shortly about K-1. Please know that these plans and the specifics will be shared with the families in these grade levels. As we bring more students back, plans may need to evolve and we will communicate those details to families. We are excited for the return of our students and appreciate you patience.

Technology:

We all have had at least one experience with a technology hiccup. It causes anxiety and even tears (for the adults). We are learning fixes and work arounds for all our programs and devices.  If you think your device is not working please contact the office at 586-797-6400 and I will help you.

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!
