Our Parent Association will be hosting the next skating party of the year!
Date: Friday, December 9th, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

A key component of our educational program is student attendance.
To provide your students with the highest quality educational programming, students must be present at school and on time.
To help in keeping our attendance rate strong, we will have a school-wide competition to see which classrooms have the highest attendance rate.
Every class that has perfect attendance, meaning all students are present, and no tardies will be given points.
After three weeks, the class with the highest attendance rate will be gifted either a trip to Starbucks (East Campus) or West Campus students will have Hot CoCo and Treats delivered; the competition starts Monday!
Transportation Change Requests
Great news! Starting in the new year, we will be changing our system of making transportation requests.
We will be using an online digital form. This will help expedite the transportation change process.
Please be on the lookout for this update before Winter Break. The new system will go into effect on January 3.
5th Grade Pancake Breakfast
Reminder, our 5th-grade students, will be having their pancake breakfast this weekend on December 4
The breakfast helps us in raising funds for Camp Calvin Crest
Breakfast and poinsettia pickup hours will be from 7 am - 12:00 pm
We have been awarded three little libraries from the Merced County Office of Education. We will have our Grand Opening Friday, Dec 9, 2022, @ 8:15 am.
A Little Free Library is a free book-sharing box where anyone may take a book or share a book.
Little Libraries function on the honor system.
You do not need to "share" a book to "take" one. If you take a book or two from a little library, try to bring some to share to that same library or another on campus when you can.
Each of our THREE Little Libraries will be managed by an assigned "steward." The assigned steward takes care of basic maintenance, like keeping the library clean and inviting, but it is up to everyone who uses the library to keep it stocked with good books.
WEST TK-3: Mrs. Cassady's 2nd-grade class, located in the West Campus drop-off
EAST 4-5: Mrs. Blount/Mrs. Shearer's 4th-grade class, located in the District Office parking lot
EAST 6-8: Mrs. Peterson's 7th-grade class, located in the East Campus drop-off
Our stewards will keep our Little Libraries clean and inviting, BUT we need the help of YOU, our community!
Remember, please do not place McSwain School library books in our Little Libraries. ONLY books you own that you'd like to share with others.
READ, SHARE, TAKE, AND ENJOY!
