Welcome to 2nd Grade!

We are looking forward to working with you and your children this year!

Here are some helpful reminders as we begin the year:

*Please send a water bottle with your child each day. It needs to be able to close to avoid spills.

*The office will no longer allow students to be checked out after 3:15.

*In order for your child to learn at his/her best, please ensure that your child gets a good night's sleep and set/enforce screen time limits.

Mrs. McKay

Hello! I'm Maureen McKay! This is my 32nd year of teaching. I started as a student in Jeffco, did my student teaching here and then moved to California. We moved back three years ago, so this is my fourth year at Swanson! I am married (my husband is a teacher, as well!) and I have 7 children with 3 of them living at home. When I am not doing "teacher work," I enjoy being outside, reading, and making things for people.

Mrs. Strait

This is my 6th year teaching and 4th year at Swanson. This year I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade. I am married and have three children, ages 13, 14, and 17 years old. I am Colorado native and enjoy rollerblading, biking, vanilla frozen yogurt, and family movie nights. One interesting fact about me is that I have gone skydiving three times.
