Character Word for the month of January is
Spread the word.....We will be celebrating Seventh Ward Elementary's 100th birthday on Fri., February 27th @ 1:00 p.m. in our gym. We have added an "Open House" from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. for anyone who can not make the 1:00 presentation to come and browse the decade tables. Everyone is invited to attend. Join us as we travel down memory lane from 1915 until now!
Former Seventh Ward Elementary staff, Central Office staff, and school board staff are invited to our reception beginning at 12:15 p.m. in the cafeteria.
We are asking our community for any old pictures or school memorabilia they may have of Seventh Ward. Photos may be sent in a labeled envelope to be scanned and returned OR they may be emailed to Stacey Milton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Laura Dunlap (email@example.com). Thanks!
We are no longer able to accept orders for the Centennial tshirts.
BOXTOPS, CAMPBELLS, & COMMUNITY COFFEE LABELS
We collect all Boxtops, Campbells labels, and Community Coffee labels. Our school earns lots of money when you simply cut out and turn in those labels! Please go the the Parents link, then select "Support SWES" to find out more.
This year we will be taking pre-paid orders for smoothies. We generally have smoothies the last Friday of the month. We will begin collecting $3 from students on the Monday during smoothie week. We will take pre-paid orders through Thursday and submit that count to Smoothie King. Any student who forgets to pre-pay and brings $3 on Friday (smoothie day), will have to wait until all pre-paid students receive their smoothie before being able to buy one. Pre-orders for this month begin Monday, Jan. 26 - Thurs., Jan. 29. Smoothie Day is Friday, Jan. 30.
Yearbooks are on sale. Our special Centennial Edition full-colored 44 page yearbook is now $35. Only 200 copies have been ordered. Order yours now. The last day to order is scheduled for March 27 if our copy limit hasn't been reached.
