Welcome Ms. Limer!

Help us in welcoming Ms. Limer to the 7th grade Wolfpack team; she is teaching Reading and is the permanent replacement for Mrs. Juden. We are also very grateful to Mrs. Arnold for filling in during this time. Ms. Limer is a graduate of Cleveland State University and she is excited to be at Swansboro Middle.

Security System

Many Onslow County schools have received new security systems. Ours was installed this week. Beginning Monday, February 15, our front doors will be locked between 7:20-2:25 daily. You will be asked to show a photo ID and then Mrs. Flowers will unlock the doors for entry. Please be patient with us as we implement this new system.

Bus Evacuation Drill- February 17

Students will participate in our annual School Bus Evacuation Drill the morning of Wednesday, February 17, 2015. This will be a rear emergency door evacuation. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately.

The Transportation Department is requiring the drivers to review safety procedures and appoint a couple of students to take over, in case the bus driver was to become incapacitated.

Send in your Box Tops!

This year, we have earned $530.70 and have used this money to purchase instructional supplies for teachers. Our next box top mailing will take place on February 29. Please send in all of your box tops and give them to the ladies in the front office between now and the end of the month. We appreciate all of your help!
