From the Principal’s Desk: Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year at Stanley Switlik Elementary. We begin this school year with several new faces on the Switlik Campus. We are delighted to have a parent coordinator this year, Mercedes Lemos. Mercedes will be here to assist Kelly in the front office as well as using her bilingual skills to assist our Spanish speaking parents. Joining the First Grade Team we welcome Bailey Jongbloed and Lynn Straube. Joining the second grade team we welcome Laura Kulisz. From Miami, we welcome Connie Rodriguez on our third grade team. On our fourth grade team, we welcome Marathon native Stacie Gonzalez and Jacqueline Hancock. From St. Maarten, we welcome Kim Thompson on our fifth grade team. We welcome Elizabeth Blankenship and Merlou Robinson as new members of our support team. Joining our pre-k program, we are excited to have Hillary Weixler, Crystal Umpleby and Erin Robertson. Finally, we have two new amazing paraprofessionals, Sandy MacClugage and Noami Koehl.
Along with these new teachers, many new students and parents, we welcome you to Switlik and we look forward to a very exciting and rewarding school year. As always, I look forward to seeing you around the campus.
