Dear Friends of Swift,

I hope you are having a wonderful summer! In June I met with two groups of Friends of Swift parents and supporters to discuss the next steps of Friends of Swift. I have to confess, this summer has been incredibly busy for me but I'm excited to refocus my attention to Friends of Swift for the second half of the summer. If you are interested in joining our committee of parents, teachers, staff and community members to help officially establish a board and apply for our 501(c)3 status please email me today as I am in the process of planning our next meeting in the next few weeks. In the mean time, please check out the opportunity we have this year to provide ALL of the gate volunteers for EdgeFest. Each volunteer earns an hourly wage which will be donated to Friends of Swift. If we fill every slot, we can raise several thousand dollars for Swift School! Swift is an amazing school and I'm glad we're all a part of it.

GATE VOLUNTEERS ⎥Saturday, Aug 6 & Sunday, Aug 7

EdgeFest is just around the corner and we have an awesome opportunity to raise money for Friends of Swift. This year the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce has offered every Gate Volunteer slot to Friends of Swift first. That means that for every hour we provide volunteers to serve at the EdgeFest entrance gates, Swift School gets paid!  That's where YOU come in! We need volunteers to SIGN UP TO SERVE BY SATURDAY, JULY 30. Sign up HERE to reserve your time slot and we'll email you more information about where to check in on the day of the event.  All volunteers will receive a free EdgeFest t-shirt. Please check out the time slots and sign up today!

AUDITORIUM UPDATE⎥Chairs are Under Construction

We are still waiting for construction to begin in the auditorium, but we have received word from Murphy and Jones that they have started constructing the new chairs. We will keep you updated when construction actually begins in the building - our hope is that everything is completed by the time the 2016-2017 school year starts. Once phase 2 is finished, our next goal will be to begin phase 3, which includes a new screen, lighting updates, and audio/visual equipment. Little by little, it is exciting to see former Principal Till's dream come to completion as this auditorium will be dedicated in her honor as the Harlee Till Auditorium.  If you'd like to give a donation to help us start phase 3, please  email to find out how you can give today!
