Welcome back to school!
We have a School Council Meeting scheduled for Monday, April 4 at 6:00 pm virtually on Microsoft Teams. All parents are welcome to attend. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to Ms. Jernigan at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you a Teams Invite.
Our Casino fundraiser is scheduled for Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30 and we need at least 30-40 parent volunteers! We usually earn about $65,000 and last year alone this purchased:
-$20,000 for computers/Chromebooks and a cart for student learning
-100+ new library books
-Club and Activities Supplies
-Digital Displays in our hallways to celebrate life at SWL
-Sound Equipment for virtual assemblies
-Wrestling Mats and PE Equipment
-Grade 9 Farewell celebration and grade 6-9 awards
-Planetarium Day: Grade Six Science.
Currently, we need a lot of new games and supplies for our library, which is scheduled to reopen for students mid-April.
If we don't have volunteers, we will lose the casino. Thank you in advance for signing up and making your child's school a better place to be.

Lastly, we have lots of exciting events scheduled in April to June so stay tuned. With the lifting of many COVID restrictions, we are excited to bring back Awards celebrations, Band Concerts, Drama Performance, Open Houses and much, much more.
Have a fantastic weekend, thank you for your continued support.
