The Parent Teacher Organization at Southern Wake Academy maintains a close working relationship between parents, teachers, staff, and students. It is our goal to enhance the educational experience by supporting the students and teachers through fundraising efforts to provide additional equipment, services, and special projects.

A strong PTO is only possible with parental interest and ensures a better school environment for our students attending SWA. The PTO holds monthly meetings to discuss and implement the ideas of the parents and teachers. Meeting attendance and involvement in the PTO count toward your parental volunteer commitment.

Fundraising Committee Chair – Cindy Tatem

The SWA PTO is happy to offer another “Buy a Brick” campaign for our families and local businesses.  The bricks are professionally engraved with your message then installed by the end of the 2018 school year at the base of the large flag at the main building.

  • SWA personalized “family” brick is $75 each
  • Business promotion brick is $100 each

Order forms with payments are due by Monday, April 23rd, so we can place a rush order to have them back in time for installation. What a great way to leave your mark on our campus!

Thanks for your support!
