A Message from the Principal

Dear Southwest Middle School families,

Today our school year officially ended without a student or teacher on campus. I know that students and parents have worked hard at home to conclude this school year. I can't wait to see everyone again when things return to some normalcy. I will miss seeing our eighth grade students, but I am excited for them as they take the next step up to high school. I hope that they will come by when this pandemic has passed and say hello and tell me how they are doing.

Our PTSA is auctioning off all of the items donated for the Fine Arts Festival online. There are some great items up for auction and all of the proceeds benefit our students! The auction starts tomorrow at 8 AM and concludes on June 5th at 9:59
PM. To bid on auction items, please follow the link below:

I would like to thank one of our parents and school volunteers,  Elissa Alvey, for producing and starring as our guest speaker in our Evening of Excellence video.  All of the families who have a child being recognized in the video have been notified.  I am so proud of all of the students recognized in the video and their amazing accomplishments this past school year.  You can watch the video by following the link below:

Our yearbooks for this year are delayed due to COVID19.  We should be getting more word on their mid-July. We will let everyone know when they will be arriving at that time.

If students have anything that needs to be returned to the school, our office will be open over the summer. From June 12, 2020 through July 24, 2020, we will be closed Fridays. Our Monday thru Thursday office hours will be 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. For students entering 7th grade next year, please make sure that your child's vaccination records are up to date. Please call the front office if you have any questions about vaccinations.

Please check here to see some well wishes from some of your staff.
Have a fantastic summer and remember, GO SEA LIONS!
