November Parent Newsletter

Hi Gator Families!

I hope everyone remembered to turn their clocks back.  It will be better for our students to have the sun shinning when they are getting ready to go their bus stops.

Just some quick reminders and updates for our parents:

Please fill out the Georgia Parent Survey at home or come in to SWES and fill it out in the parent center, media center or computer lab.  Your voice and opinion is so important and we need to hear from you.

Just click on the blue link and it should only take a couple minutes to complete. Parent Survey Link:

Attedance Reminder:  Attendance is mandatory.  Parents of children with excessive absences will receive notification to attend an Attendance meeting with the Principal to discuss a plan for improving the child's attendance and/or tardiness.  Please help us reduce the amount of absences and tardies by having your child at school each day on time.  Our bell time is 9:15 a.m. - 4:00 p.m..  Absences and constant late arrivals or early pick ups has a direct impact on your child's learning.  If you child has to be absent due to an illness, please be sure to send in the required documentation to excuse the absence.
