April 1, 2020 - Governor Brian Kemp has just signed an Executive Order closing all school districts for the remainder of the school year. This is an unprecedented decision that I know was not taken lightly. At this point, there are more questions than answers. The Emanuel County School district will work over the next several weeks to provide answers to these questions. We ask that our community continue to follow all recommendations regarding hand washing, social distancing and staying home when possible. We pray everyone stays safe and healthy!

Welcome to what promises to be another great school year at Swainsboro Primary School!! We are incredibly excited about the 2018-2019 school year and know that it promises to be filled with even more opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before! As we begin this year, we pledge to you . . . our students and parents . . . that this will be a wonderful year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms.
We want to extend a special, yearlong invitation to our parents to join us at our school activities and events whenever you can. We need classroom volunteers, invite you to eat lunch with your child, meet with your child’s teacher on a regular basis, attend our PTO and/or School Council Meetings, you are encouraged to be involved! Research clearly states that parent participation in their child's school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!
We have an outstanding and dedicated faculty and staff. We promise to value our student’s as individuals. We believe that in coming together with a common purpose, we can do great things that will lead to success for our staff, students and families of Swainsboro Primary School.

We hope the information on our website is useful and will help you be engaged in your child’s education. We will continue to add new features as appropriate. We hope to provide you with the information that you will need to stay abreast of our ongoing accomplishments, our upcoming events, and any special news bulletins that may be provided from time to time. We may be "small town" but our students and staff have heart, determination, and a desire to be the best. We are also blessed to have the support of our community. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful team!
