Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children. “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation. Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” for the next six weeks of the academic year for all elementary school. Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.
Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.

This year our district is providing an iPad for each student K-6th. Before a student can use their iPad, a parent must register their child for a Google account. The account must be in the child’s name. Several schools had registration on Thursday night, others are waiting until curriculum night. Because Swanson’s curriculum night isn’t until September 4th, we are having registration available at our school picnic, Friday August 15th. ipads will be set up on each child’s desk, directions will be provided. Staff will be there to assist.
See you all this Friday at 5:30!
“I am also looking forward to working with the dedicated staff, students, and community who will make this an exceptional assignment.”
