  • Dear Parents of students entering the 7th and 8th grade:  
    As you are aware, next year we will be holding special enrichment and intervention classes each Wednesday.  On Monday 6/11, we will be providing students an opportunity to identify 8 of the enrichment classes that they are interested in participating in. We will work to make sure that students have at least 2-3 of the classes that they sign up for.  We are sharing the link to the class descriptions here, so you can discuss with your child the class options prior to their sign up on 6/11.  You can access the class list here:
    There will be 5 total periods on Wednesdays.  Some students will have a period of math intervention or language arts intervention (for extra support in these content areas) and 3-4 enrichment classes and some students will have 5 enrichment classes.
    Mr. Swanson (SWMS Principal) will be holding another parent meeting (date and time to be announced soon) that will provide additional information on the research and background supporting this new and exciting model for Wednesdays. If you have immediate questions, please contact Mr. Swanson at
