Elementary Master Schedule
Figuring out which “special” an elementary school student is participating in during a school week is now just a matter of following the calendar and a short set of numbers.

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.

Information About Westside Facilities Master Plan Available
Information about proposed changes and improvements to Westside Community Schools facilities master plan is now available.

iPad Registration
iPad Registration is Friday, August 15th

 

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!



 
Please welcome Mrs. Sandy Irish, Principal
Please give a warm welcome to Mrs. Sandy Irish, Swanson’s Principal for the 2014-2015 year.  “I am excited and honored to have been asked to be the interim principal for the 2014-2015 school year. I have spent my entire career with the Westside Community Schools. I taught fifth and sixth grades at Paddock, Loveland, and Prairie Lane. I was the teacher leader at Sunset Hills and was the principal at both Prairie Lane and most recently Loveland. Throughout my years in the district, I have known that student success and a working relationship with both the parents and the community are priorities.”

“I am also looking forward to working with the dedicated staff, students, and community who will make this an exceptional assignment.”
