The kids of Swanton Elementary walk their new labyrinth in a combined Guidance and Physical Education Class. Mr. Juckett and Mrs. Rose thought the labyrinth presented a nice combination of mind and body awareness, so they teamed up to bring the walking labyrinth to the kids. Mrs. Rose says, “We were totally amazed at how much the kids enjoyed the experience. They talked of how peaceful and calm they felt as they walked the path to the center and back again.”
In anticipation of extremely cold temperatures, we are canceling Walk To School Wednesday on Dec 13. Please bring your children directly to the school. Grand Ave bus company has also been notified of this cancellation.
Swanton School will be participating in the Hour of Code this week. Every student will have the chance to participate in coding to see how it works. We hope to spark interest and create opportunities for our children to discover coding and eventually how this knowledge can affect them!
