Attention Grade 8 Parents: we need Student Volunteers Again!

Thanks so much to all our amazing student volunteers who baked and sold at the K-3 Literacy Night on Monday.  We are on our way to raising lots of money for our Grad Dance in June.

We need more help though.  Especially bakers!  (but sellers too)!   If your graduate could either bake for or help sell at the Holiday Concerts Wed Dec 13 and Thurs Dec 14, please have them signup online at http://www.swanseaps.com/grad-8-grad/students-sign-up/.   S points will be awarded.

Family Literacy Night

As we continue to promote Literacy in our school community, thank you to all of our families who came out to our Literary Night event on Monday.  It was a wonderful story time experience, the storyteller was dynamic and it was a very interactive session for all of us.  She left a few suggestions on how we can make “Storytelling” a fun time activity for the entire family and at the same time foster literacy:

  • Tell stories you remember hearing when you were young and in any language you may speak at home
  • Ask your child to tell you about their day at school, and then share the story of your day.
  • Tell stories as a family at the dinner table or at bedtime

Visit her website and listen to stories together. Website: http://www.svstorytellers.com
Thank you to Sarah Legacy for organizing this opportunity for our Swansea families!
