Hello, McSwain Community!
I hope you are well. Take a look at the announcements below.
Coffee with Mr.P!
Once a month, we will be hosting a forum called Coffee with Mr. Pannu. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss ongoing events here at Mcswain and how we could continue to strengthen the partnership between our school and our students and families. Our next session will be next Friday, 9/29, at 8:30 a.m. in the West Campus Cafeteria.
Our second meeting will focus on the dangers of social media and how to support your child.
For parents unable to make the meeting, we will also upload a presentation copy onto our website.
Donuts and Coffee will be served.
This is open to all Parents! Spanish Translation will be available.
Homecoming Float Building
I am delighted to share that McSwain will join the Homecoming Parade at Atwater High School!
Scheduled for Friday, October 13th, the parade welcomes participants from all grades at McSwain. Let's ensure we rally to show our school spirit! We invite students and their parents to join us, walking alongside our float donned in our McSwain blue and white.
In anticipation of the float building, further details will be sent out next week. Let’s join together to represent our school with pride and enthusiasm!
Safety in Transportation
As the school year is now well underway, we kindly ask you to revisit our bus policies. Students must be secure while utilizing our McSwain buses. With California School Bus Safety Month approaching, our transportation team is eager to review our protocols with students and staff!
