We hope that you can attend and/or volunteer your talents to any of these activities. We are excited to annouce that all of these events will be in-person events. We welcome each of you with huge smiles as we bring our school back to the place we love and has been known to build friendships/family among the adults with the ultimate goal of benefiting the childern. We are experienced at co-existing with Covid and plan to make each live event a huge success with safety measures in place.
Let’s bring the SWS family back! For now, take care!
