As the necessary need for mental health awareness and self-care has grown over the course of the last few years, this last year specifically, SWMHS has collectively decided to honor our commitment to servicing the student (and faculty) populations. Our inaugural virtual mental health fair is being held between May 10 – May 17, 2021 and the community will be able to utilize this site as a continual resource for their everyday actions. Mental health awareness and self-care is a top priority which we hope those in need will be able to implement in their daily practices.

La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica recognizes those students who excel in the study of Spanish. The Sayreville Chapter, «La Esperanza,» or "Hope", was established in 1977 and is affiliated with the National Spanish Honor Society, with chapters throughout the nation and the world. A formal Induction Ceremony in Spanish is conducted as prescribed by the National Organization. Invitations to join the Society are made following the first semester to students of Spanish III, IV, and Advanced Placement. The requirements are:
Students of Spanish III: a 90 or better mid-year average in III and a 90 or better final average in I or II, if studied at the high school.
Students of Spanish IV: a 90 or better mid-year average in IV.
Students of Spanish AP: an 85 or better mid-year average in AP.
Invitations are also extended in September to former students of III and IV who achieve a 90 or better final average in their course of the previous year. Final grades from I and II do not affect election in September.
The goals of «La Esperanza» are, in addition to recognizing the academic success of its members, to promote the study of Spanish, to encourage the understanding of the Hispanic culture and people, and to provide opportunities for school and community service to its members. Annual school-wide projects are the Celebration of World Languages Week in March, a Tutoring Program, and a world-wide Pen Pal Service. Society members also participate in Letter Writing Breakfasts to cheer veterans and hospital patients, the making of Hispanic crafts to be given to out-of-school groups, presenting programs in other district schools, and the opportunity for publication of art and writing in the national magazine. The Society also sponsors dinner trips for its members. The officers are president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. The colors are red and gold. The motto is «Todos a una», "All for one".
The requirements for the club: to be drug, alcohol and smoke free.
We have about 40 members that work hard to make this club a success.
Members of TIGS get together to reinforce their decision to be drug, alcohol, and smoke free. They try to influence their peers to realize that they can have fun without using drugs or alcohol. We provide presentations to the entire school every year that educates the students and staff about the possible effects of using drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. The members have gone on high and low ropes courses together to build trust and friendships. They have done work for Middlesex county and represent our school at Community Unity Day, which requires them to help educate the families of Sayreville about drug and alcohol abuse.
Every summer we send students to a Teen Leadership Conference, which allows students to spend a week attending seminars and workshops dedicated to educating the students about drug and alcohol abuse. Students enjoy the camp so much that they offer another camp for students to reunite when they attend college.
