Please be sure to check out this week’s issue of The Swarthmorean newspaper for a riveting description of the SHHS robotics team’s efforts, alliances and technical difficulties in their pursuit of championship!  There is also a heartening article about Arts4Smarts – the foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools and their wildly successful fundraiser.  A crowd of 275 enjoyed food and drink and auctions – benefiting our schools to the tune of $30,000!  Hooray for Frannie Reilly and her team!  If you missed the party but would like to donate, please visit http://supportwssd.org! To be one of the first to know all the local news, please subscribe to our small town weekly paper by stopping by The Swarthmorean office at 112 Park Avenue in Swarthmore, calling 610.543.0900 or emailing editor@swarthmorean.com!
