Principal's Message


Dear Switlik Families,

The Switlik School has awesome students, dedicated staff members and great volunteers!


The Switlik School Community is extremely active and is supported by very caring and committed members.  We are proud of the efforts made by our children, staff and parents.  At Switlik, we work together as a TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More.  As a TEAM, we know our school will continue to learn and grow.


You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success.  You take an active and crucial role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits.  Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn.  Please continue to ensure that your child reads each and every night.  All Switlik children received a “Reading Bag” this year to transport their nightly reading back and forth to school.  Be sure to look for these bright, colorful reading bags.  Academics require practice; just like piano, baseball and dance.  Thank you for taking an active role in your child’s continued success!


There are many ways you can get involved at school - check out our awesome PTN.  They do so much to support our school programs with your continuous generosity.  The PTN held its first meeting on Thursday, September 18th.  It was wonderful to see so many parents in attendance!  In these busy times, and with such crazy schedules, I understand how difficult it is to fit everything into an already packed week of commitment.  Please mark your calendar to attend a PTN meeting and meet new friends in your extended Switlik family.

Please note the PTN Meeting dates for the 2014-2015 School Year:  10/16 -9:30; 11/20-7:00 p.m.; 1/15-9:30; 2/19-9:30 a.m.; 3/19-7:00 p.m.; 4/16-9:30; 5/21-7:00 p.m.


As a reminder, school is closed on Thursday, September 25th and Friday, September 26th.  Enjoy the beautiful weather with family and friends.  Thank you for all of your continuous support!
