Daily Morning Announcements

Good Morning Swanson! Today is Friday, April 29th and these are your morning announcements!
The final round of the Swanson 2016 Spelling Bee will be held in the auditorium next week on Thursday, May 5th during Mod 1. The finalists should check in with their STAR teacher and then proceed directly to the auditorium. All Mod 1 classes are invited to attend the Bee.

Thanks to all those students who turned in the week 3 Ken Ken puzzles. Reminder to turn in the pink week 4 puzzles by no later than Monday May 2nd. The winners of the random prize drawing this week are 6th grader Kieran Hizon (KEE – ren High – zahn), 7th grader Natalie Martin, and 8th grader Michael Curran. Your prizes will be available next week.

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: Name two of the provinces or territories that make Canada's "Four Corners."
Bike and Walk to School day is Wednesday, May 4th! Tweet your best biking and walking photos @SwansonAdmirals, and you could win a prize!
Did you know the library has some awesome magazines, such as J-14, Hot Rod, Soccer 360, and The Green Lantern comic?  Stop by the library to read these and so many more! The library is taking suggestions for our 2016-2017 magazine subscriptions.  Is there a magazine you wish the library had?  Let a librarian know by May 6th.
School Lunch Hero Day is a national celebration founded by Jarrett Krosoczka , creator of the Lunch Lady graphic novel series. The day was created to give kids to the opportunity to show their appreciation for all of their cafeteria workers, who often receive little or no recognition or are even sometimes maligned in popular culture. The celebration is a great reminder that everyone in the school building needs to work together to nourish growing bodies and minds. Swanson will celebrate the day on May 6. Please stop by the Library to write a thank you note to Swanson's cafeteria staff and find out how you can get involved.

Tickets are $7 and can be reserved online by following the link on the front page of the Swanson website. Payment for the tickets will be collected at the door of the performance!
