SWHS Kindness Rocks Project

October 16, 2017


Kindness Rocks Project

Come by the media center during lunch to paint your own Kindness Rock for Unity Day and Anti-Bullying Month during the week of October 16-20!!

The Kindness Rocks will be hidden around SWHS campus to be found October 23-25.


If you find a rock, either give it to someone you think needs a happy thought that day, keep it for yourself, or return to Mrs. Forester for a candy prize.

Some of the girls from the SWHS Environmental Club volunteered for the Explore the Outdoor Festival over the weekend. They were so helpful and wonderful with the public. 

It is just another reminder that SWHS has some truly wonderful kids that will go on to do great things! Unfortunately, we didn't get a picture of them all...but this is a cute one of Summer, Delaney, and Aiden.

We will wear orange on October 25th to acknowledge Unity Day: Together Against Bullying. United for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Wednesday, October 25, 2017.

Make it orange and make it End! What are yur true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools, make your color orange on Unity Day!

The band competed over the weekend and received an overall superior at the Blackwater Classic in Milton, FL!! This was their first competition of the season!

Congratulations Jordan Nichols!

September 15, 2017

We are so excited that we get to brag on Jordan Nichols, a Junior at SWHS.
Jordan is a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.
He is one of 16,000 Semifinalists in the US and will have the opportunity to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million.
Jordan earned this distinction by taking the PSAT/NMSQT at SWHS.
Last year Jordan was a member of the Walton County Academic Team that won the State Academic Championship. He is a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Seahawk Tennis Team.
We congratulate Jordan for this accomplishment and encourage all of our Seahawks to take the PSAT seriously when it is given at SWHS on October 11th. Maybe you can follow in Jordan’s footsteps!
