    "This was a great year and there was MUCH more communication to parents and a lot less mass fundraising as compared to other years. This is a great school with caring teachers and a good group of children and parents. Swansboro has a great community feel, as does this school. Would highly recommend this school over any other school in Onslow County."

    "I am very happy to have my kids attend this elementry school. I have had good to great communication with the teachers. My son's 3rd grade teacher this year was exceptionally great at communication with me where my child needed more reenforcement. I love that the staff did many activities with the children this year (talent show, musical, fall festival). It was great to see all the parents and staff come together for the children to have these great things."

    "Swansboro is a great "hometown" river community and a great elementary school! There are so many caring parents and teachers in this school and community. We do wish there was more principal involvement at PTO meetings and other school events, although the school has improved dramatically with the new principal. There could definetely be more communication with fund raising. So many parents want to give money towards the school, but there was no explanation where the money was going... Other than that, for the most part, the teachers and staff are wonderful and do the best they can with the funds given, especially in this economy. Great 4H after school program as well! Hoping the tests scores continue to move up!"

    "1)Subsequent to my initial post, I was able to speak with the principal of SBES in two meetings. In these meetings, she provided answers and solutions to problems and engaged in very positive discussions. 2)During this last year, PTO events were organized and run by the board w/out committees and (in my experience) the Volunteer Organization was unable to utilize volunteers to their full capacity. Based on a recent PTO/Volunteer meeting, I am hopeful that in the 2011/12 year more parents/volunteers will be able to actively participate. More parents= more revenue. 3)In my own personal opinion, students deserve teachers that treat them with respect, kindness, warmth and compassion. My child had such teachers and was therefore able to excel both academically and socially."

    "I have worked for other Elementary schools and worked at SES years ago. I know work here at SES as the Secretary/Treasurer and I am overwhelmed at the parent involvement here. It is not like this at some of the other area elementary schools. We have a very supportive PTO who has worked hard to raise money for the school this year and we are very appreciative. Unfortunately, we also have to do fundraisers sponsored by the school to help pay the bills. I was amazed to see what it takes to run a school financially. We are audited twice a year so money is not being misused I promise you. I as a parent I never knew the importance a school fundraiser. My children did participate in some fundraisers but not all. I let them pick and choose which ones we were going to do each year. They understood that they may not win or be able to make it to the Main Event and that was ok. I can promise you that not one of my children require therapy because they didn t get to go to the Main Event , Limo Lunch, or watch another child have a Sno Cone or popcorn in front of them. Please understand that if it was not necessary to do the fundraisers we certainly would not do them."
