Hello 5th Graders and Families, 
 
We hope you are all healthy and well. Students, we miss you very much and we cannot wait to see you again.  Due to the school closure on March 13th, no new instruction will be given at this time.  We have created a 5th grade friendly website for Optional At Home Learning and we will be updating this weekly with optional assignments from teachers. Please see link below to visit our 5th Grade At Home Learning Page. This can also be found through the Swans Creek Class Pages. If you have any further questions, please contact me at (siebermb@pwcs.edu) or through the HUB.  PWCS will send out updates and information to all parents and students as new information comes out. To get updates from Swans Creek Elementary, follow Swans Creek Elementary Facebook page and/or Twitter page. 

 

We want to share this PWCS link with you all, http://www.pwcs.edu/news/what_s_new/to-go_meals_available_free_during_closure. During this time you can go to these locations listed by the county to receive to go meals while school is closed, they are providing breakfast and lunches. Dates and times are provided in the link above. 

 

 5th Grade, we want you to know that we are here for you with any questions you may have regarding the website or for just a friendly hello.

Sincerely,

 The 5th Grade Team
