A Message from Mr. Geilenfeldt

This past school year was special as we celebrated our 60th anniversary. Swaney has a rich history of providing a great education for Derby students, and I believe the best is yet to come! We are excited about our new vision as a district which is Every student, every day, preparing for the future. We will continue to provide our young Wildcats with a top-notch educational experience. It is our goal to make learning fun, meaningful and engaging. The best part is, we want to invite you to be a part of our team. Feel free to jump right in and help us make this school year great. We have a lot of pride in our school, our district and our community. Come find out what makes Swaney Elementary extraordinary! 
Kurt Geilenfeldt, Principal
