Sward staff and students have welcomed several new faces to our school and we will be introducing each of them to you over the next few weeks. Our next new Sward teacher we would like to introduce is Ms. Allison Simon who joins our Encore team as Sward's Art Teacher. We decided to interview Ms. Simon to get to know a little bit more about her. Students have been enjoying Art class once a week with Ms. Simon and are creating amazing pieces of artwork with her. We hope you will get the chance to meet Ms. Simon in person at Sward's open house tonight, so please stop by and introduce yourself. We know you'll love her the minute you meet her!
