Testing Motivation


Parents and Students, PARCC testing is fast approaching next Monday, March 16, 2015. With that in mind, we want to encourage our students. Although this may seem like an overwhelming task, keep a positive, relaxed, and joyful attitude, thus these traits can make a huge difference between success and failure


 “For success, attitude is equally as important as ability”

                                                                Walter Scott



J. Ezidore, SWES Principal

Thanks to Reverend Leon Franklin for

taking the time to come to SWE to offer

words of encouragement to the 3rd

through 6th graders before PARCC

testing begins.
