S.W.A.T. stands for Scholars Working to Advance Technology. Our motto "Ne Plus Ultra", means nothing more beyond, to reflect that we are reaching towards the highest point of achievement.
In our 8th year (2016-2017), there will be some restructuring, teams will be divided into squads to provide more collaboration and accountability in the badges they earn, with a higher level of achievement and accountability. There are also some new projects to work on and some new Field Trip opportunities.
WHEN &WHERE IT IS
Meetings are held every Tuesday and Friday after school from 3:45—4:45 in the Gator Lab [Room 112]. Mr. Davis volunteers his time to provide a fun, extra-learning time. Scholars commit to coming to the club and using available technology responsibly. Scholars are also required to keep their grades at a passing level and their conduct at either an S or E.
S.W.A.T. members are a select team of fourth and fifth grade scholars, who have submitted an application and referral by a certain deadline, consistently maintain their grades and conduct, and are committed to the advancement of technology.
As soon as all applications have been turned in, referrals made, and members accepted, the Team Captains sit down with Mr. Davis and choose who they would like on their team. We will announce this in our first meeting.
Applications are due to Mr. Davis, Friday, September 2, 2016. The applicant will then be placed on a candidate list. After reviewing the applications with the school counselor, acceptance letters will be given to those who have been accepted when the process is complete. Information will be included concerning the first meeting.
Looking forward to the Eighth year of
