Swann and Our Community

Locker Room Refresh!

We'd like to say a huge thank you to Beyond Sports NC, Chris Shields, and the student athletes of Swann and A&T University who came out last week to build benches for the men's' and women's' locker rooms!

Swann's 100th Birthday!

Show Your Swann Spirit at the 100 year anniversary, Saturday, April 9th. We will have games, competitions, a DJ, food, and fun for the entire family. Save the date! Speakers and a featured historical section at the anniversary will help you step back into time to remember how we have evolved as a school. To volunteer, contact Leslie Wright at or any PTA member

Roar Store Donations

Please help us reward students who are consistently on time to class and meet school-wide expectations by supplying our Roar Store! Every morning, students who have earned Den Dollars for their positive behaviors can shop in the Roar Store. Single-serve bags of Takis, chips, and Hot Cheetos, and Gatorade are especially popular! We would also love Sonic or Wendy's gift cards to use for providing special rewards. Contact Dr. Bocci if you have questions at

Ms. Arnold teaches Math 1 and 2. She has a degree in Environmental Sciences from NC State (Go Pack!). She loves Coca-Cola and has one every day in 2nd/3rd core. Her hobbies are reading, hiking/walking outdoor trails, and snowboarding. She's hoping to read 50+ books this year! Her favorite things to do are go to bookstores and sit in coffee shops, bonus if it's a bookstore with a coffee shop in it. One day, she wants to climb one of the seven summits.
