Thank you so much for keeping SWS in your hearts!

Bean Bag Tournament

SWS has once again been chosen as a beneficiary of the Angels Among Us (AAU) fundraiser. This is the same foundation that raised money last summer, and the donation to SWS was used to purchase the STEM desks and chairs in our 4th grade classroom. Our 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Biren, is part of this foundation.

They are hosting a Bean Bag Tournament, Breakfast, and Silent Auction event on Saturday, February 23 in the PAC. You are invited to join them for a french toast and sausage breakfast (Ettlin’s french toast), registr as a team to compete in the Bean Bag tournament, or purchase items in the Silent Auction.

They are also looking for SWS volunteers to help; please click the Signup Genius link to volunteer. If you would like to donate an item to the Silent Auction, register a Bean Bag Team, or purchase Breakfast Tickets, please contact Dawn Biren at
