Appreciation and Kindness for our Volunteers

With the holiday season underway, we want to say thank you to all of the parents and community members who donate their time in support of our Silver Hawks. So many of our activities and events rely on volunteer support in order to operate and our community is second to none in terms of support for our students, teachers and coaches. From organizing meals, to helping move equipment and volunteering in our booster store, we are grateful for the help that we receive from our parents and community members. We know that being involved in so many ways also means sometimes having to manage situations that don't go exactly as planned. We do ask that everyone who works with our volunteers remembers that when things go awry, sometimes things are beyond their control for one reason or another and when that happens, please be kind, patient and respectful. Our volunteers are committed to doing the best they can to help ensure that everyone gets what they need and that everything goes according to plan. Thank you to everyone who gives their time for the good of Southwest.

Holiday Hawks

 

Holiday Hawks is an annual event for elementary aged kids held by LSW Key Club.  Parents are encouraged to drop off their children at LSW for an afternoon (1:00-5:00 p.m.) of fun games, crafts, and movies.  While the kids have fun with us, parents are able to go holiday shopping. 

 

Snowman's Wonderland

 

A winter carnival of fun filled games for children and their families this night from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m on December 19.  There will be snacks, various games and cookie decorating to name a few of the activities.  Proceeds will go to the Angel Tree Christmas.  

 

Food

LSW has a year-round food pantry available to all LSW families. Student or parents can fill the form out online— enter jump code BCY3 at lps.org to get there— or stop into the LSW Counseling Center to get set up, either as-needed or on a repeating basis (standing order). There are a number breakfast foods, canned goods, and lots of yummy things to eat right away or keep in your cupboards for later, all for free! Let us know if we can help. 

LSW tiene una despensa de alimentos disponible todo el año para todas las familias de LSW. El estudiante o los padres pueden completar el formulario en línea: ingrese el código de salto BCY3 en lps.org para acceder al formulario, o visite el Centro de Consejería de LSW para registrarse, ya sea según le sea necesario o de forma repetida (orden permanente). Hay una cantidad de alimentos para el desayuno, productos enlatados y muchas cosas deliciosas para comer de inmediato o guardar en sus armarios para más tarde, ¡todo gratis!

ParentVUE

Synergy ParentVUE is a component of the Lincoln Public Schools Student Information portal that allows parents/guardians secure access to student grades (secondary), assignments, attendance information, and much more. ParentVUE will soon become the avenue for parents/guardians to verify student enrollment in LPS, replacing the paper Census Form returned to the school at the beginning of each year.

The District has a goal of ensuring at least one parent/guardian per household has activated their ParentVUE account. If you haven’t yet activated yours, please contact the school office for an activation key. [ENTER SCHOOL’S CONTACT INFORMATION]

More information about ParentVUE can be found on our school home page under 'Essentials'.
