Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Parents and Families of SWAN,

Time flew! We have ended the first two months of school in student success. Currently, over 200 students are participating in SWAN through preschool, after-school, virtual and weekend program. In maintaining communication with parents, I hope you are connected with our teachers on google classroom. If not, it is important to set it up and not miss important news or update. Email to SWAN's office at info@swan-nyc.org for set-up assistance.

I also hope in the past weeks, parents have had the time to attend preschool curriculum night or the after-school parents teacher conference. SWAN strives on communication, and we appreciate your time in connecting with us.

On another note, being in the month of November, students across all SWAN programs will learn about gratitude and giving thanks. I like to take the opportunity and share, there are important board members, parents, families, teachers and staff in making SWAN a successful place to learn and grow. We are grateful for your confidence in our teaching, and thank you for being supportive and caring to SWAN's mission. We need everyone's continued support to help SWAN grow, remember to show your support on Giving Tuesday (11/30)! Detail to follow in google classroom.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Fu Mei Cheung

Executive Director
