Happy Sunday Pirates,

It was a great week at Swansboro High School that included underclassmen pictures, SAVE Start with Hello Week, tons of athletic contests and victories and our first round of interim reports. This week at Swansboro High School will include Spanish Spirit Week, federal cards, a lockdown practice drill with students, our Freshmen Tailgate and an action packed week of athletics. The tailgate will be held before the JV football game on Thursday from 2:30-5:30 pm and freshman students who wear their Class of 2027 t-shirt will get in for free! Students will be able to enjoy food, fellowship, activities, and more!

Our Foreign Language Club is excited to host Spanish Spirit Week. See the flyer for details on daily activities. Next week is Homecoming Spirit week and the homecoming dance.
