Trolls ImageWelcome to the site of the H. Russell Swift Elementary School.  There is a great deal of excitement within our walls as we celebrate and embrace our theme for the 2017-2018 school year.  Looking to help students be kind and caring individuals, we look to the support of “Trolls” as we say “Be a Buddy not a Bergen.”  We will be referring to the movie throughout the year as we teach our children some great character traits.

Our staff will not only embrace your children but engage them in meaningful classroom experiences which will educate them for success.  Our children will have great learning opportunities as we continue with EnVision Math from K-3.  We are pleased to have a new reading series in K-2 called SuperKids. Our third grade students will also have a new approach to Reading and Language Arts in an academic environment modeled after best practices using MAP (Master Academic Plan).  We will incorporate STEM/STEAM lessons within our curriculum throughout the year at all levels.

This is going to be an exciting year for all!  Swift Elementary School is a very positive uplifting environment.  Using Jostens’s Renaissance program, we recognize students, faculty and staff for the amazing things they do regularly.  We are proud to be a Star school and want to continue to live up to the expectations which precede us. 

Parents and guardians are invited to visit and certainly peruse our web page for the great happenings throughout the year.  Always know that you are more than welcome to be a part of the parents club which continues to help and support the school throughout the year. If you are already part of the Swift family, you know what we do.  If you are new to Swift, “Welcome!”    Our staff is awesome! We do what we love and we love what we do!  Here at Swift it is “Every Hand Together!”  Every student every day!
