Ladies Bunco Night

Take a trip back to the 80s with the lovely ladies of SWA on November 17th for our 1st BUNCO event!   

The fun starts Friday night with a meet and greet at 6:30 pm, where you can meet some wonderful SWA ladies and learn the rules of Bunco, too! 

Come dressed in your 80s best, bring a friend, and prepare for a night of prizes and fun! (80s outfits encouraged but not required.) We ask that you bring an appetizer to share; beverages and desserts will be provided.

Admission is $10 and half of all proceeds will go toward the “Lion Crusade” with the goal of ending athletic and club fees for SWA students so that all students can participate. 

Contact Mrs. Nuemann with any questions:

Spirit Week Contract

Senior FAFSA/College Application Night

Who should attend: ALL Seniors hoping to attend a 4-year OR community college AND a parent/guardian. 

What is it: This information session will be to explain what the FAFSA is, share tips for filing the FAFSA, debunk FAFSA myths, share scholarship search tips, assist with understanding financial aid packages, differentiate grants/loans, and answer ANY questions regarding the college application process. 

WhenThursday, Oct. 26th @ 6:30 pm

Where: Multipurpose Room

Why: FAFSA is the ONLY way to be considered for Federal Financial Aid. Financial Aid in NC is awarded on a first come, first served basis so it is very important that students submit their FAFSA sooner rather than later. ALL students planning to attend college should file the FAFSA regardless of perceived income or financial need. This will also be a perfect opportunity to ask Ms. Carlton any questions about the college application process (4 year or community college).

**Halloween themed treats and snacks will be included**

Please use this sign up genius link to RSVP
