We are excited to launch the 2016-2017 Mighty Men program at Swansfield! We look forward to having fathers, grandfathers, and other special men in our students’ lives get involved in our school!!
What is Mighty Men?
Mighty Men is a program for men to visit for a day at Swansfield. Men will spend the day with their child including language arts, math, related arts, lunch, and recess.
Who can participate?
Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, Stepfathers, and other special men or father-figures in students’ lives.
When can I do it?
We can accommodate your schedule and find a day that is convenient for you.  Usually you stay for the whole school day, 8:30-3:10, but the hours can be adjusted to meet your needs.
Why should I participate?
Kids LOVE to see men in school. Your child will be proud to have you visit. Your participation sends a strong, positive message to all students that school is important. You will be a hero for the day!
