Our mission is to educate for life so that each child acquires the knowledge and skills to succeed in school and beyond.

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 tickets are on sale now for $6 and will be served from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.

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!
