The Parent Guild is run by parents who want to share their unique talents and have a positive impact at our school. Every parent at SWS is considered a member. We strive to keep all parents informed on school news and facilitate volunteering, champion new ideas, and help resolve issues. The Parent Guild also serves as the voice of parents while supporting our Teachers, Administration, Board of Trustees, and College of Teachers.
The Parent Guild is organized with the following elected positions: Chair, Co-chair, Treasurer and Secretary. Currently, our work is accomplished through these committees: Parent Education, Harvest Faire, Hospitality, and New Parent Welcome.
Each grade has a volunteer Parent Guild Representative that provides a direct line of communication to connect families with the entire SWS community and share school news and information with parents. Representatives also help organize volunteers from each grade for the various festivals and special events our school offers. A team concept where 2 or more parents act as a grade’s Representative is a welcomed approach that gives busy parents scheduling flexibility.
Meetings are held in the Library on the first Monday of each month during the school year from 6 to 7:30pm. Due to various school and holiday schedules, these meeting dates and time may vary, please check the Parent Guild calendar for updates. All parents, including grands, are welcome to attend. Please contact your current Parent Guild Representative or email Parent Guild to get involved.
