Open House

Our June Open House will begin in the auditorium at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, June 13th with introductions from the 8th graders.  We will then head to Swift House so all students can share their projects.  We will see Independent Projects, DC Projects and 8th Grade Challenge Projects.  All students should attend this final celebration of learning for the 2016-2017 school year.


8th Grade Challenge Presentations

8th Graders will present their projects to community members on June 13th starting at 10:00.  We have some wonderful former Swift parents and teachers joining us as part of the community panel.  We would still love more panelists!  Please e-mail Stephanie if you can attend.

Poetry Slam

See the next three posts for photos of our 3rd Annual Poetry Slam in the Al Myers Theater.  Students shared their poems on stage for their peer audience.  Poems ranged from silly to thoughtful, quiet to lively.  We were so impressed with how many kids took the risk to get up stage and read their writing!
