The Race is On!!!

Summer is about to begin but it is not the time to let go of all the good work habits that each of our students have practiced and perfected all year long.

witlik School challenges all of our students to read 100 steps this summer.

Continue to read each day for at least 15 minutes or 1 step.
Remember to log each step on your own summer reading log. Additional logs can be downloaded and printed from our school webpage...CLICK HERE!

Students who meet the 100 Step Challenge will be recognized at our September Reading Rally.

Keep in mind, this will help keep your reading skills fine tuned for September and the new school year ahead.

Have a wonderful summer! Relax - visit the shore and all, but please take time to READ a little bit every day!!!

Principal's Message



Dear Switlik Families:

As the school year ends, you begin your summers, enjoy time with your families, and remember to reflect on the important things life has to offer… I know that there are many successes and accomplishments that our teachers and students have to reflect upon and celebrate.  I am thankful that I work with such a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic group of educators who always has the best interest of “our children” as their top priority!

We say good bye to our fifth grade students. We hope you take many good memories of the years spent here with you as you leave.  Many new and exciting opportunities await you at the Goetz Middle School. Take advantage of them and remember to choose to make each day there a good one. Continue to be a Bucket Filler! 

Please do not forget about the value of continued learning; do not let anyone take a vacation from reading!  Involvement in reading during the summer months leads to better academic performance when children return to school in the fall. Please continue to encourage your child to read; once again Switlik will take part in the Switlik Summer Reading Challenge! Our summer goal is to read 100 steps or 1500 minutes. It’s simple; have your child read 15 minutes each day (that’s 1 step) and every third day do 2 steps and you will hit the target by summer’s end.  Additional log sheets can be downloaded from the Switlik web site if needed.

I also encourage you to take advantage of the different math web sites provided on your child’s teacher’s class web page.  They will provide your child with activities and games to practice and to stay sharp with math facts over the summer.

Thank you to our Parent Teacher Network; our extraordinary parents, guardians, grandparents and community members for all you do each and every day.  I would like to say thank you for the greatest gift of all – your time.  It is most appreciated and most valuable; not only to our students, but to all of whom you reach within our community each and every day.  

On behalf of the Switlik Staff, we wish all of you a happy, healthy and safe summer. The portal will be available online Wednesday, June 24th to review your child’s report card.  We look forward to seeing everyone in September! School starts September 2, 2015.

Kathleen McKiernan, Principal
