SWANSON ELEMENTARY... HOME OF THE SUPERSTARS
Sixth Grade Students Compete in Brownell-Talbot Math Contest
Owen Hoy, Aiden Karpf, Abigail Schreiber, Eliot Gray and Graham Waterstraat participated in a Math Contest on Thursday April 16th hosted by Brownell-Talbot. The students took an individual test and a worked together on a team test. In the individual contest, Grahamís score earned him 5th place. Aiden Karpf had the fourth highest score. The group took second place in the 6th grade division! While the tests were being scored, the students were able to rotate to different logic puzzles. It was a great experience for the students and they had some fun, too! Way to go Swanson!
Lamarr Womble
In March, Swanson had a guest speaker from New York City! Lamarr Womble, originally from Bellevue, Nebraska, talked about Passion and People and tied it into our Fish philosophy: Choose Your Attitude and Be There!† The students really seem to enjoy this day, especially the "shake down!"
ARTIST VISITS SWANSON
Lisa Worrell, former Westside elementary teacher, took time to visit Swanson. Worrell shared her talent and love of creating art made of paper. All students created their own version of paper art. These will be displayed at the Art Fair & Pizza Bingo night on March 20.
HAT DAY FOR HEAVENLY HAT FOUNDATION
Swanson Student Council Sponsors A Hat Day And Raises Over $250.00!

The Heavenly Hats Foundation collects and distributes brand new hats of all kinds to those heroes of all ages who lose their hair due to the treatment of cancer or the many other medical conditions which may cause hair loss.† The Heavenly Hats Foundation was founded by teenager Anthony Leanna when he was only 10 years old.

Since it's beginnings in 2001, Heavenly Hats has distributed more than 1,500,000 brand-new hats to hundreds of hospitals and clinics around the United States.† Thousands more have been shipped directly to individuals.† We also send hats to many other countries upon request.† We want to help every patient who is in need of headwear for warmth, comfort, courage and strength.

It's our hope and prayer that one day a cure for cancer and the many other illnesses that affect our family and friends will be found and eventually no one will be in need of a Heavenly Hat, but until then we'll keep sending these special hats (and smiles) to our Hat Heroes. Thank you to all of our donors without you, we would not be able to continue on with our mission.
