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, Oct. 27 - Thurs., Oct. 30. Smoothie Day is Fri., Oct. 31st.
FALL PARENT JAMBOREE
Our annual Fall Parent Jamboree will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 21. Jambalaya dinner will be served from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. The parent meeting on Human Trafficking will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the gym while the children participate in fun activities in their classes.
We will also be raffling off 6 baskets during the dinner. Tickets are on sale now in advance and may be purchased during the dinner until 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $1/chance or $5/6 chances. We are asking that you donate any item for your child's themed basket. Themes are: Kn- LSU; 1st-Beach; 2nd- N.O. Saints; 3rd - Louisiana; 4th- Movies; & 5th-Photo.

Parents will be receiving information this week about "Remind 101", a texting service that our grade level parent representatives will be using to send you texts about upcoming events specific to your child's grade, as well as upcoming school events. The text will come from a computer-generated phone number that you will not be able to respond to. Also, your number will not be seen by anyone. We are hoping that this method may reach more parents when we need your assistance. Please take less than 5 minutes to sign up when you receive the letter this week. Thanks!
We are currently accepting pictures of family members who are U.S. Veterans for our Veteran's Day slideshow. You may email photos in a .jpg format to Mrs. McElroy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures that can't be emailed should be sent in a labeled envelope so they can be scanned and returned. The last day to turn in pictures for our Veteran's Day slideshow is Oct. 27th.
