Hello from the Southwest Parent Teacher Student Organization, and welcome to 2nd quarter 2016-17! If you have donated money, time, or goods, we want you to know that we have done some great things with what you provide to us:
Thanks to the generosity of our Southwest Community, this year we have outfitted highly mobile students with cold weather gear, backpacks, school supplies, and sports equipment that they needed to participate fully in school activities-- we raised special funds for a laptop computer, continuously stock our in-school free store, outfit classrooms and study hall with tissues, cleansing wipes, and other basic needs; provide meals for teachers on long conference days, and host guest speakers on topics relevant to parenting teens (one more is scheduled for May 5th from 5-7 in the new commons-- don't miss it).
THANK YOU. We rely solely on generous donations of time, money, and goods. Southwest High School's Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) is doing good works thanks to you and all you do.
The PTSA board is seeking members to support Southwest in 2016-17 and beyond. Become a volunteer with jobs big and small...
The following list represents activities formerly under the auspices of the PTSA each year:
