Family engagement programs are offered throughout the school year at SWOS. For example, all family members/guardians of newly entering students enrolled in SWOSology, our mandatory character education class, are strongly encouraged to attended Parent Night, wherein the students teach their family members/guardians the skills that they learn in the class.
In addition to Parent Night, SWOS hosts Gallery Days/Nights at the end of every term, which is a celebration and showcasing of student work. Galleries are well attended by the families and friends, as well as other community members.
SWOS also hosts several Potluck meals sponsored and coordinated by the SWOS Student Council. In the 2009-2010 school year, SWOS hosted a Financial Aid Night to help students and their families understand financial aid in relation to post-secondary options. SWOS has also hosted a Mental Health Night and began a Parent Support group that met once a month.
