The current school year is quickly winding down. There are many events planned and unfortunately, some of these events need to be rescheduled due to weather or other issues that interrupt our planned schedule. Please check the pop-up for the most current information.
Congratulations to the Third Grade students and their teachers. They posted a 97% proficient/advanced score on their TCAP Reading test this year!
Congratulations to our principal, Randy Bohlander, on his appointment as Superintendent of the Cotopaxi School District! We appreciate his time and commitment to Lion Pride over the past six years. We wish him well in his new position. (We will be conducting principal interviews and selection during the month of May.)
Thank you for your support of Swink students this year; in the classroom and during their activities. Have a safe, restful summer vacation. It’s a great day to be a Lion!
