Bean Bag Tournament

SWS has once again been chosen as a beneficiary of the Angels Among Us (AAU) fundraiser.

Our 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Biren, is part of this foundation.

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.
