Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
Our school year will be over in three short weeks. We wish to thank each school parent for your unwaivering dedication to educate your child and navigate this pandemic. We are honored that you chose SWS to be your partner in this great endeveour. We have had an awesome school year and have seen the huge growth in our students academically and as people of God longing to have a joyful heart and faithful soul. We could not have done this without you. Our gratitude abounds.
We also must extend our thankful hearts to our friends, supporters, alumni, parishioners, and grandparents. You have given us the financial strength, positive blessings through prayer, and the encouragement to keep going even when the times were tough. Thank you!
Let’s pray together for our future as we look ahead with hope and trust.
