Join Southwest and the PTSA to make 2014-2015 a year of connection and growth!

The PTSA board is seeking members to build depth and maintain a strong presence of support at Southwest in 2014-15.

This summer, we are looking for
volunteers to help at new-family/freshman events and to fill our annual volunteer schedule.
Choose to dedicate yourself to the same event each year or mix it up.
No experience necessary, and everyone is welcome, from incoming to alumni.
We all do our part to keep our school on top! Contact to express your interest and join in the fun.


The Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) at Southwest High School invites you to join us in our mission to:

  • Promote the well-being of Southwest students at school, at home, and in the community.
  • Bring together parents, teachers, and staff to support students and achieve excellence in education.
  • Successfully advocate to serve the best interest of Southwest and all MPS students.
  • Share our strengths to promote Southwest’s community value and attract partnerships and support.

Join the PTSA today with your $25 membership. SIGN UP HERE:
