National Fossil Day at our Local Fossil Museum

This upcoming event is being held at the Aurora Fossil Museum on Saturday, October 10th from 9:30am to 4:00pm.

We are celebrating National Fossil Day! This day will have activities, talks, fossil displays, and of course plenty of fossil hunting in the fossil park! We hope that the local families will join us for the day for this event, the weather is supposed to be nice (upper 70's and partly sunny)!

Congratulations Ms. Henries!

Ms Henries' daughter is getting married October 24, 2015. Our thoughts will be with your family on this special day

Fire Prevention Week in Pre-K

The students in Mrs. Abbe and Mrs. Brown’s PreK Class at S.W. Snowden in Aurora had two very important visitors on October 8, 2015. The students have been learning about fire prevention and, had learned the true story of “Smokey the Bear”. They were elated when “Smokey the Bear” and Ranger Perry came to visit in their classroom. Ranger Perry went over all the ways they could prevent a forest fire as well as, how to react if they are involved in a home fire.

About Us

S.W. Snowden serves about 200 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade . The students come from Beaufort County communities in and around Aurora, Edward, and Blounts Creek. The school's history can be traced back over several years and it has been restructured several times. In 1970, the Aurora school was renamed S. W. after Mr. Seward Webb Snowden who was a dedicated principal from the 1940s to the 1960s.
