Morning Announcements

Good morning Swanson! Today is April 12th and these are today’s announcements:

  • A reminder that there are no after school activities or late buses today! Enjoy your Spring Break!
  • The last math shout out before spring break goes to all Swanson students for your diligence and effort in taking the county quarterly math benchmark.  In addition, an extra shout out to the almost 400 students who turned in math month KenKen puzzles from the first week. Reminder to turn in this week’s pink puzzles and watch for more after spring break.  Prizes for math month KenKens will be announced at the end of April.
  • Congratulations to the Swanson swim team on winning a 5th consecutive county championship title!  Individual event winners from the meet were: Sarah N in the 100 yard Freestyle, Bridget ML in 100 yard IM and in both 25 and 50 yard Breaststroke, Josie G in 25 Butterfly and 50 yard Freestyle, and Jackson W in 25 yard Backstroke.  Our girls 200 yard Medley and Freestyle relay teams  took first; girls that were on the relays were: Lauren F, Bridget ML, Josie G, Maeve O, Scarlett G, and Sarah N.  Great job Swanson swim on winning the county meet yesterday and thanks for such a great season.
  • Nice job by the Swanson track team at Kenmore yesterday.  As detailed results are not yet available, individual winners from the meet will be announced after spring break.
  • Some other track announcements:
    • 1)  Ordered T-shirts and sweatshirts should be available for pick up on Monday after spring break.   We hope to distribute them during STAR and lunch primarily.
    • 2)  Meet sign up sheets for the last two regular meets have been posted all this week.  If you are interested and have not yet signed up do so today.  Realize that there are space limitations in the meets, so signing up does not guarantee you a spot.   Make sure to check the track board today and on Monday after spring break for more information.
    • 3)  The final regular season week is the first week back from spring break, so make sure you are at practice Monday the 22nd unless you have a documented excused absence.
    • 4)  and do some running over spring break – enjoy the week!
