Every day in December, students who receive NO behavior marks will earn a chance in a daily grade-level candy cane raffle. 

At our sing-a-long on Dec. 19th, all good behavior names will be put in a school-wide raffle to win one of 30 bikes and helmets donated by Academy Sports in Denham Springs!!!


Special thanks to all of our parents and grandparents who helped with Santa's Secret Shop all last week!  You are very much appreciated!!!



We will be celebrating our school's 100th birthday in February.  We are asking our community for any old pictures 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 ( or Laura Dunlap (  Thanks!

Don't forget to order your Centennial tshirt before Dec. 19th! No late orders can be accepted.

Students will be allowed to wear these Centennial tshirts on our Celebration Day (Feb. 27) and on any other day school shirts are allowed.  Order forms have been sent home again.


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, Dec. 15 - Wed., Dec. 17.  Smoothie Day is Thursday, Dec. 18th. 


Yearbooks are on sale now.  Order our special Centennial Edition full-colored 44 page yearbook before Dec. 19 and pay only $32.  All orders placed after Dec. 19 are $35 per book.  Flyers are going home this week.
