Dear Switlik Families,
As the school year ends, you begin your summer, 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. “Switlik Elementary School is a community of friends. Our school has provided us with a very special, shared experience that is truly unique. I hope that they will carry this experience with them wherever they go, and that they will use their memories of their time here to inspire them as they take their next step! Many new and exciting opportunities await them at the Goetz Middle School. .
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!
Get a jump on next year’s Dunk Tank tickets at our Second Annual Reading Fun Festival! Children in kindergarten through second grade can keep reading skills strong during the summer months by spending 15-30 minutes enjoying reading, practicing sight words and writing letters, words and sentences to keep skills fresh. Children in grades three through five are encouraged to read five days each week this summer for 30 minutes a day. That ten steps per week, or 150 minutes per week will add up to 1,500 minutes, 25 hours of reading, or 100 steps! What a super way to keep your reading skills and stamina up throughout the summer! Reading logs were sent home, and additional logs can be downloaded from the Switlik website.
Parents we need your help! Please continue to cut and save those box tops over the summer. We are planning ahead, and this will help fund next year’s Reading Festival! Our target is to raise $5,000 by just cutting Box Tops! The class that collects the most each month wins a munchkin and juice party! For a list of participating Box Top products, visit www.btfe.com/products.
Thank you to our phenomenal Parent Teacher Network; our extraordinary parents, guardians, grandparents and community members for their endless generosity, support and dedication to the all the children in the Switlik community!
On behalf of the Switlik Staff, we wish all of you a happy, healthy and safe summer. We look forward to seeing everyone in September! School starts September 6, 2016.

September 14th – K & 1
