SWS Goding education

Support SWS

There are several ways to support our school:

1. Give money directly to Friends of SWS.

All funds donated go directly to the school for training and development for teachers and professional staff; special course offerings at the school; support staff in classrooms; and supplies and equipment not provided by DCPS.

Donate to Friends of SWS

2. Participate in our Annual SWS Jazz Gala and Auction (March 5, 2016)

Every dollar raised from this event goes back directly to SWS. Reaching our goal depends on the generosity of SWS friends, families, businesses, and community members. This event is for everyone! Even if you do not have a child at the school, please still consider supporting this amazing cause — a strong education for children will further strengthen our vitality as a community and more importantly, for our children’s future.  For more information about the auction or to volunteer to help plan the auction, email our auction chair at auctionSWS@gmail.com or learn more on the SWS Auction website.
