Sweeny Elementary 

September 4, 2018

Dear Sweeny Families,

The last 14 days have been INCREDIBLE! We are seeing so much growth in your children already this school year! Our students are greeting one another each morning, leading assemblies and working extremely hard in their classrooms. 

This is a BIG week at Sweeny! We will deploy After School Clubs tomorrow for the first time ever! Be watching for photos. If you have not yet RSVP'd for Grandparents' Night, please do so. We will have pizza, pie and punch for $5 on Thursday night. We plan on having a packed house!

Should you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call or email. 

The Best Is Yet to Come~
Dr. Engelhart and Mr. Lockmiller

After School Clubs

We were amazed at our turnout for our first ever After School Clubs! We had 237 students sign-up to attend this semester! 
Clubs meet the first Wednesday of each month from 3:45-4:45. 
Students had the choice between 11 clubs that will run from September to December. New clubs will start in February, with permission slips being sent home again in January. 
 
Student Leadership  Teams 

School wide leadership opportunities are coming soon for all Sweeny students in October!  We will have our Leadership Expo where students will hear about the various student leadership teams. They will fill out their leadership application on  September 28th. Ba sed on their choices, students will then be assigned to a team for the year. In October, students will begin meeting on Mondays at 8:40 a.m. Teams will meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month.
