Meet Your Teacher Night!

Hello McSwain Families,

As we gear up for the first day of school, I wanted to send you a few updates regarding our Meet Your Teacher event and student schedules. As you know, we want to alleviate students' anxiety in attending the first day of school. In seeing their classroom and meeting their teacher, students will be clear on where they need to go. This will also allow for less traffic during our morning drop-off on the first day of school. Please take a moment to read the announcements below.

Important Information
