Our lunch volunteers have been incredible. Thank you so much for helping us get the snack carts around and providing assistance to our students who work the snack cart! I have enjoyed watching you all work together! Thank you parents!!!
We are short a few slots this upcoming week for snack cart helpers. If you have any time available to help out at lunch time we would really appreciate your help! This is a great chance to work with our students and really get to be a part of their day!
Here is the link for our lunch time helpers!
I cannot begin to say how much we appreciate everything you all do to help around school. It truly takes a village. Our testing lab has been wonderful, it allows students with accommodations to have a quite place to test, but also provides a place for students to take their tests after they have been absent. These testing labs have been a GREAT addition to SWA. Thank you to everyone for making them possible!
Building 4 lab is just about covered for the week. We only have a few openings left. If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated.

This is a reminder that the PSAT will be administered at Southern Wake Academy on Wednesday October 14, 2015. This test is recommended for all 10th and 11th graders to take. This test provides practice for the SAT and gives the students feedback and what areas they need to work on before taking the SAT. Scoring well can qualify your student for the National Merit scholarship.
This Wednesday, September 30th, the students will get a chance to sign up in advisory if they missed signing up last Monday. The fee to take the test is $15.00 per student.
Students can pay with cash or checks written to SWA. All payments should arrive prior to October 7th to reserve a spot. The students should turn their money in to Mrs. Nasrallah.
