Book/Item Collection: We will be holding a “ Drive Thru” style event for parents and students to return items (Teacher/ Media Library books, calculators, classroom supplies etc..) from the school beginning on Thursday, May 28th – Friday, June 5th from 8:00 am -12:30pm at the school. Please enter through the school entrance as usual and proceed to the front of the building (Main Entrance). Carts/bins will be positioned on the left sidewalk closest to the teacher’s parking lot for easy access. Should there be inclement weather, please refer to the Switlik Web Page in the event that the book drop off has to be canceled for that scheduled day.
During this event, it is important that all parents and students remain in their cars, practice social distancing and ensure a safe environment for all. No one is permitted to walk around the school campus, the parking lot, or other parts of the campus. Please come at the time that is best for you and your family during these time frames. Please be advised, school loaned Chromebooks are not being collected at this time. Additional information will be communicated at a different time.
Attention all Switlik parents….
To recognize our traditionally scheduled Game Days…. Mr. Hamdi thought it would be fun to have some game day challenges. Mr. Hamdi has created an awesome Game Day Challenge for all Switlik students in kindergarten through fifth grade. A Google Slideshow will be shared with all students through the Switlik Webpage the week of June 1st. On it, you will find 6 bitmojis of Mr. Hamdi in various formats. Next to each Bitmoji there is a grade level arrow showing you which activity is aligned to each grade level challenge. Please click on the Mr. Hamdi Bitmoji and watch the youtube video that goes with it. Then, have your child complete the challenge. If you would like, you can film them performing the skills and send them to Mr. Hamdi (email@example.com) or me, Mrs. McKiernan (firstname.lastname@example.org) via email or shared through Google drive. Looking forward to seeing some, or all of your videos! Save the date….check out the Switlik Webpage the week of Monday, June 1st!

We all have access to Raz-Kids! I set up an account for each student. If you aren't familiar with Raz-Kids, it is a site that has text available for students on their reading level. Students have to master a level to move to the next. Each book has a set of comprehension questions at the end.
I am linking the login cards here. Find your student's name, maybe even take a picture with your phone and check it out. Happy Reading!
SCHOLASTIC NEWS RESOURCE
I'm super excited about this home resource. Thanks to our amazing PTN for buying Scholastic News subscriptions for our school, the students also have access to the online resources. All of the articles for this year are available along with tons of bonus materials and activities. Using Scholatic News isn't required, but since we have a lot of time on our hands it's worth a glance.
Check it out!
