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 March begin Mon., April 20 - Thurs., April 23. Smoothie Day is Fri., April 24.
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 pre-order deadline has passed, however, if our copy limit hasn't been reached we will continue to take orders (first come- first served as payment is received).
