Hi SWWFS Families!
I know you’ve all been waiting to hear about what your amazing donations are going toward. The HSA events team has been working hard to make your dollars count and we hope the teachers and administration will enjoy what we’ve got in store for them this year. Please read below or see the attached flyer for all the info you need . . . And our work is not done yet. If you were unable to contribute earlier, or if you still feel like you want to help in other ways, please see below for more ways to thank our ALL STARS. Your time is also VERY worthwhile to everyone, so if you are able to volunteer throughout the week, please sign-up and/or email Leah Shoval at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
All the best,
Leah Shoval and the HSA Events Team

Please come and cheer your teachers and administration on to class – parents and students will line the hallways from 8:40 – 8:50am while cheering on their all-stars with pompoms.
Please come to the station set up in the main hallway to write a message and sign a message on a pennant to your favorite all-star. Parent volunteers will then hang the pennants throughout the school Monday evening.
