Daily Morning Announcements

Good Morning Swanson! Today is Friday, February 5th and these are your morning announcements!
 
Congratulations to the Boys Basketball team for their 42-18 win over Williamsburg yesterday!
 
Students from all three grades at Swanson competed in the National Geographic Geography Bee on February 3rd. Their global knowledge was impressive. The winners were
3rd Place Henry Bedell - 6th Grade
2nd Place Damien Kanner-Bitettii - 7th Grade
1st Place Jake Lanier - 6th Grade
Caroline Coleman also earned a lot of respect and an honorable mention for her effort to take 3rd place.
 
All first place winners from this years’ Science Fair please go to room 132 during STAR.

It is time to play Fun Facts Friday. Submit the correct answer along with the library database you used to find the answer by 2:30 in the library. The winner will be announced on the Monday morning announcements. This week’s Fun Fact Friday question is: Which territory in Canada lies fully in the Arctic Circle?

Congratulations to our new cast and tech crew members of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!!! Our official CAST LIST IS POSTED ON THE THEATRE CALL BOARD!
