Other Bits of Information

  • Lost and Found:  There are various items in the lost and found that belong to our students.  Surprisingly, there are winter jackets in it. Please make sure you check the lost and found as soon as possible.  Items will be donated to Tap In come the New Year.

  • Parking in the Lot:  When parking in the school’s parking lot, please make sure you are parking legally.  The space to the left of the handicapped spots is not a parking spot for your vehicle.  There is a no parking sign there. Also, the grass area on the right when pulling into the lot is also considered a no parking zone.  By not parking in these spots, it will be easier for everyone to enter and exit the parking lot.

On behalf of everyone at Sowams School, I hope you have a 

wonderful holiday and a happy, healthy New Year!
