Swanton K-6 PARENTS and STUDENTS…

School Calendar Change

IMPORTANT: The superintendent just made a change to the 16/17 school calendar. It currently states that there is no school on Friday, March 24, however there will be a half day of school with dismissal at 11:25.

We will still be holding conferences in the evening on Thursday, March 23. If you have already scheduled for Thursday you are still set to have your conference at that time.

Teachers will be sending home a new Parent/Teacher conference schedule to replace the one previously set up for Friday, March 24th. This new schedule will go home in the March 8thWednesday Weekly along with an explanation for the change in the school calendar.

We are sorry about this; it was a decision made at the supervisory level. Have a great winter break.

Have a Child Ready for Kindergarten Next Year?

Kindergarten Corner:

IT IS KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION TIME!
If your child will be turning five (5) on or before September 1, 2017 he/she is eligible to attend Kindergarten in the fall.

Registration

What is Registration?  Registration is the first step to enrolling your child at Swanton School.  Please take a moment to stop at the Babcock Building to get a registration packet so that you can complete the necessary paperwork for Kindergarten for the 2017/2018 school year.  In order for your child to attend school the Vermont Department of Health requires that you provide a COPY of:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Records

If your child is enrolled in the Swanton Early Childhood program, we already have them on our list as an incoming Kindergarten student.  The Kindergarten registration packet will be sent home with your child in early February so be on the look out.


“Getting to know you” Screening will be held on Friday, May 5 from 9:00-10:30 or 10:30-12:00 or 12:30-2:00    

OR

Monday, May 8 from 9:00-10:30 or 10:30-12:00 or 12:30-2:00 at the Mary S. Babcock School.  (not required for Swanton Early Childhood)

What happens at  “Getting to know you” screening?   This screening is intended to help school staff members gather basic information about our incoming kindergarten students.  Parents can expect a screening to take about one (1) hour 15 minutes, with the child having an opportunity to play with other children, meet with a kindergarten teacher, have his/her vision and hearing examined, and meet other school personnel.  As parents you will get to know some of the people connected with our school.

Please schedule an appointment for your Screening when you drop off your registration packet.  You can also call the school to schedule an appointment: 868-4920.

See our “KINDERGARTEN CORNER” on the Swanton School Website for more information.  http://www.swantonschool.org/
