Happy New Year!

 

It was great to see all the smiling faces this week as we journey on to the 2nd half of the school year. Over the next few weeks, all students will be taking the NWEA mid-year progress monitoring assessments. These assessments guide classroom instruction by giving feedback about student growth in math, reading.

 

 

Winter has arrived and looks like it plans to stick around for a while. We do not go outside if the temperature is below 10 degrees including the wind chill factor. Thank you for making sure all of your children’s winter items are clearly marked with their first and last name.

 

Please remember there is no school for students on Monday, January 17 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

 

Stay healthy.

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!
