Good Afternoon SES Families,

There is a ton to celebrate from the first half of the school year and we look forward to making many more memories when students and staff return from winter break. Thank you for your ongoing support. 

Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend! ~ Anthony J Esposito, Principal

The Green Beanz Environmental Team is collecting plastic to win a bench from Trex! Students are helping to weigh the plastic each week, but Mrs. DiVenti and Ms. Malcotti could use help bringing the plastic to drop-off bins at a supermarket (ex. Giant, Harris Teeter). 

Please use the sign-up sheet: Swansfield Plastic Recycling Pick-up to help with their efforts! From there, all you need to do is park in the front and come into the vestibule. Bags will be waiting to be picked up there. Thank you in advance for helping the Green Beanz!



The SES P.E. team and the PTA are launching a first-time fun run to help raise funds to purchase new P.E. equipment for the school. The fun run will be held on school property and the course will be approximately 1 mile long. The event date will be announced soon (Spring 2024). Interested in helping plan this fun event for students and families? Please contact recording@swansfieldpta.org to learn more.



As we enter the holiday season, some families may find it helpful to have a list of the SES staff’s favorite things. Expressions of appreciation for your students’ teachers, staff and admins are completely optional. View the list here: SES Staff Favorite Things- 2023/2024
