Preschool/Kindergarten Summer Program
Are you a Swansea resident? Do you have a child entering kindergarten or preschool in September 2017? Would you be interested in signing your child up for a Summer program? If so, we would love to hear from you.
My daughter, also a teacher in Swansea, and I are looking to begin a Summer program for preschool and kindergarten aged children. However, before we move forward and propose our idea to the Superintendent and School Committee, we are looking for input from you. Please take a moment to complete the brief survey.

Director and Lead Teacher at Case's Little Faces Preschool
The high school will have SPIRIT WEEK in a couple of weeks. Starting Wednesday, November 16th until Wednesday, November 23rd, every day will have a specific theme and each grade earns points for that day. High school students can be very creative during this time and it does add quite a bit of positive energy to our building. Although preschool does not officially participate in earning points, we can join in on the fun. I have only listed the days preschool is actually in session. Therefore, if your child would like to join in on the fun, here are the designated days and themes.
Wednesday, Nov. 16 th – Black out Day (Students where all black).
Thursday, Nov. 17 – Twin Day (We can all dress in jeans & white top)
Friday, Nov. 18 – Formal Friday (students can “dress Up”)
We have our own dress up day again in April.
The high school will also be holding a food drive. The food drive ends on Friday, Nov. 18th. All proceeds (food/grocery gift cards) from this food drive will go directly to our local community.
Please do not feel obligated but more importantly, we hope you feel welcomed enough to join us.
We currently have an opening in our preschool program.

I will be making pancakes today for brunch. If your child would rather have their own lunch, please feel free to send it in. If you are able to assist in donating some items, it would be greatly appreciated. I will try to have a sign-up sheet with the students assisting at Sign-In and Sign-Out on Wed., Dec. 9th Items on the sign up sheet will include such things as milk, juice, butter/margarine, maple syrup, holiday plates, cups, utensils, napkins, etc. Please do not feel obligated in anyway.
PJ's and Hot Chocolate Day!- 12/17
Thursday, December 17th is Pajama Day and time to enjoy some Hot Chocolate and cookies while we watch a Holiday Movie.
Can’t think of an easier way to get up in morning and be at school for 8:00, than to be coming to school in my pajamas. Can you?
Students may wear their pajamas to school today. Slippers are permitted as long as they have a rubber sole to avoid slipping. We will be watching the movie “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, the Movie”, and enjoying some hot chocolate and cookies for snack. Students still have the option of purchasing milk and bringing in their own snack, if preferred. Also, if your son/daughter would like to bring in a small blanket to rest on while watching the movie – that is fine.
ARRIVAL and DISMISSAL - Putting Safety First
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In the attempt to keep all our students safe, the office staff has requested the following:
Thanks you for your cooperation.
Top Secret- DO NOT TELL!
It has come to my attention that some special guests, Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus would like to try to visit us on Dec. 17th.
However, let's try to keep this a secret from our little ones.
If anyone is uncomfortable or objects to Santa visiting us at school, PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know.
If all are in consensus, we will try to make this visit as exciting as possible. Could you please send in a wrapped gift for your son/daughter? Please keep gifts $10 or under. Gifts should be dropped off by Tuesday, December 15th.
I know this may be short notice and it is also a financially difficult time for many, so please let me know if this is a concern for you and your family. I can and will definitely assist you and your family if needed. Just please let me know. The students will try to secretly collect presents starting on Mon., Dec. 7th at dismissal times. If something changes I will keep you posted. THANK YOU
Show and Tell - Tuesday, December 8th
Just a reminder:
Tuesday, December 8th is Show and Tell Day. Don't forget to bring in something special that you would like to tell your friends about.

A Halloween Parade and Trick-or-Treating around the high school will take place on Thursday, October 29th.
