Daily Morning Announcements


Good morning Swanson! Today is Friday, October 9th and these are your morning announcements:

Girls Basketball tryouts are next week! 6th Graders will try out on Tuesday, October 13th, 7th Graders on Wednesday, October 14th, and 8th Graders on Thursday, October 15th. Callbacks will be held on Friday. Make sure that you have a current physical on file, and see Coach Treakle if you have any questions!
The Girls Soccer match at home against Williamsburg that was rained out last week has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 14th. Let's Go Admirals!
The Swanson Space Syndicate has been created! We will be doing hands-on experiments and studies on space, as real scientists would! It is a student driven club that will be meeting Thursdays after school in Ms. Pease’s room (160). Hope to see you there!
Attention students and parents. The Swanson yearbook is looking for old used unwanted toys. These will be used for the haunted house and will not be returned, so if you are looking to unload some unwanted toys the yearbook would love to take them. Drop off is located in room 132. Thanks!
Celebrate this Halloween in a big way! Swanson's Yearbook and the Swanson Dance Crew hosts a fundraising FRIGHT NIGHT on Friday, October 23rd from 6-9PM. We begin with a Haunted House in the cafeteria: tickets for the haunted house will be sold in advance during STAR or after school in room 132 with Mrs. Williams. We'll finish the evening with a FREE movie showing of HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA in the large gym, where concessions will be available for purchase before, during and after the movie. All are welcome and come in costume!
The Swanson Book Fair is in full swing! We will be open throughout the week, including conferences. Preview our titles or shop online at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/homepage.do?method=homepage&url=swanson. Online shopping will be open  until October 12.
The Intermediate Math Open hosted by Thomas Jefferson High School will be on Saturday, November 14th for 7th and 8th graders. They are looking for students with diverse math backgrounds - the only requirement is that you have an interest in math. If you are interested, please pick up a short application form from your math teacher. Applications are due back by no later than Tuesday October 13th.

Let your imagination fly - enter the PTA Reflections Art Contest! Categories are Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and Visual Arts. All submissions must be accompanied by an application with artist statement and turned in to the box in the front office by October 27.
