4 Macbook Pros & Photoshop software for the Graphic Design class in the High School. Students will be able to learn how to use photoshop, design electronically, work on the yearbook, and be on the same track as students from other schools.
We have funded several grant requests for Dyslexia learning software to help our students with learning challenges be able to succeed and excel with their reading programs. This includes headphones with smart pens, vocabulary enhancer programs, etc.
Students were struggling writing on the iPads so several classrooms have requested grants to have stylus pens to help students be able to write as they would on paper with their iPads.
Some of our High School & Elementary classrooms have requested flexible seating desks so students can stand, move, fidget, etc. while in class, helping with their concentration and being able to move while still staying focused.
This Interactive Smartboard was purchased to be able to do interactive learning where students can actually write on the board as they are learning/completing the learning session
In the Spring 2023 a new CAD class will be introduced in the Swanville School so that students can learn CAD software, how to design 3D images, and build off the designs they create.
We have funded numerous requests for microphones and speakers for classrooms to assist students being able to hear teachers when providing lessons and also for students to be able to speak in front of their peers loudly enough for all to hear.
Many sensory tools have been supplied for the elementary classes to help students be engaged.
Swanville ISP has helped fund an 18 hole disc golf course on the Swanville School property. Construction of this project will start in Spring 2023 with the help of other generous grants.
Our weight room appeared to be behind on items needed to help students reach their full potential when learning about their health and how to achieve a healthy lifestyle so funding was provided to help achieve this goal.
Several classrooms needed funding to help bring organization into their classrooms to help students succeed. Along with bringing in more math & social studies curriculum.
All of our students need to feel they have what they need to succeed. With this comes the care closet where students can get some of the hygiene products needed as one less thing they need to worry about. This is an awesome addition to our school & for our students success.
Our Special Education program is introducing a coffee cart program in Swanville. Our Special Education students will sell products to our faculty to learn the skills of navigating the workforce once they graduate. This will help them to gain stronger people skills, business skills, and overall communication skills to excel at whatever they choose to pursue.
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the generosity and support for my third grade classroom with the flexible seating and maps. I was thrilled to learn of my selection and very excited when items started coming in! My goal of offering flexible seating and visual support of our world and the United States are in motion! Seeing the excitement on the students faces as they use the wobble chairs and wobble cushions are priceless. Here are quotes from the students: “I usually move around in a chair, but I can move around without standing up.” “I can have fun in these chairs and still learn.” “While working we can get our wiggles out.” “I can concentrate.” “They're fun, comfortable, and good.” The chair bands, wobble cushions, and wobble chairs offer a variety of seating options for the students in the afternoon when they are in my room and attention spans may be short but still need them to focus on learning. As a first year teacher and teaching social studies and not having any maps or globes have been challenging. Now that we have the gigantic United States, world map, and globe up in the classroom, there has not been one day that we have not referenced and used them. My goal by spring is for students to be able to name the seven continents, oceans, and regions in the United States. The students enjoy looking at the globe and are grasping the concept that the world is round. When we reference locations from our readings, the students take turns finding it on the maps. We look forward to using the multiplication wipes boards in the winter. I am glad that I ordered extra as two new students joined us. The magna tiles are hit among all as their engineering minds are in play. As a new employee in the district , I am in awe of the support and dedication for the Swanville School. Again, I am grateful for this grant and feel blessed to be able to teach and be part of Swanville Community!Sara Schultz
As the year is coming to an end, I wanted to give you a huge thank you for the grant to purchase EL curriculum materials. It felt good to know that our students were given the opportunity to work with a series that was meeting the standards for English Language Development. I found the real-life topics to be interesting and engaging for our students. THANK YOU!Ms. Sebek
Thank you so much for funding the supplies/manipulatives for my classroom. The order came at a really good time. The plastic coins are being used for our money section and absolutely love that they are the exact size of real coins! We have also been using the playing cards for math activities in class. They add in addition and subtraction. The stylus pens have been a huge asset since we use Seesaw on our devices four times a week. They help keep the 1st graders writing more neat.Mrs. Wimmer
The microphone system has made a HUGE positive impact in my classroom since receiving this item last spring. Not only does it save my voice, kids can hear me easily with very little effort. When students can hear clearly, things are accomplished quicker and more time can be spent learning.Ms. Andres
Classroom book project. This was an awesome project. The students each had their own page to write about their dinosaur. They also had to illustrate their writing. It is a great keep sake for the kindergartners. I had several parents comment about how cool the book was.Mrs. Schleicher
The scanner/reader that was purchased has been an effective tool for my dyslexic student. He often uses it (with earbuds) during silent reading time and other times students are asked to read silently. He is very comfortable using it. I anticipate this tool will make any silent reading time going forward much more meaningful and enjoyable for him.Mr. Swisher
Thank you so much for the math tools and games! We have already put some to great use! These tools are helping students become fluent in addition and subtraction facts. We are very thankful for this great program that our school has been offered.Mrs. Waltman
My students LOVE these books (Kevin Lovegreen book set). The boys in particular are constantly reading them, but the girls enjoy them as well! I have noticed that they have been appealing to many of the students who typically don't enjoy reading, so it's been a great way to get those kids reading books they enjoy.Ms. Andres
I am happy to say that I was able to work with the janitorial staff over the summer to get the sensory movement pathway put on the floor. They should be set for about 5 years. It looks great!Ms. Brateng
