Swanton School Wins Healthier US School Challenge Gold!

Swanton School has been awarded the USDA Healthier US School Challenge GOLD Award!!!  The HUSSC awards recognize schools in the quality of food served, while providing both nutrition and physical education to promote healthy lifestyles.  The HUSSC is a key component of Michelle’ Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign and has also helped schools implement meal pattern changes developed by USDA. Swanton joins a select group of only about 7% of schools throughout American that are certified as HUSSC schools.
This presentation was the highlight of our First Day celebration on Tuesday, August 25.


Hopes and Dreams


Parents that attended the first day of school with their children were asked to fill out a form.  The first thing they were asked to do was to share some of their hopes and dreams for their child this year.  We are going to post some of those responses on the website from time to time.

Hopes & Dreams for My Children at Swanton School:

For my daughter to excel in her love for arts + music and obviously other fundamental classes.

I hope to see equal treatment given to all students.  My dream is for all students to be able to remain in the classroom at all times no matter their level of education.

I hope my child feels comfortable, happy, and at home in her new 2nd grade class.  My dream is for her to embrace reading and enjoy it after she’s in a comfortable place.  I hope she make lots of new friends and has a bond with her teacher this year like she has for the past 3 years!
