Upcoming Book Genre Fair--March 30th

The Book Genre Fair is our annual Literacy project--please work with 1 class of your choice from this term (some of you have already done this with a T2 class) and incorporate reading, writing, research, or discussion into the study of your designated genre. Each department will be responsible for at least 1 display or interactive booth showcasing what our students have learned on March 30th.

We intend to have seniors tour the fair during 1st block, juniors visit during 2nd, and 9th/10th visit the fair through 4th block. This will leave 3rd block open for visitors from Oak Hill Elementary and 5th block for clean up.

Youth Mental Health First Aid

It is a requirement in our district that ALL staff must be trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid. The training will be provided on the iLearn days this year, located at Northern Middle and Southern Middle in their libraries. The training runs from 8:00 - 3:30 and will hold up to 36 people. If you haven't attended this training, please email Lori Price with the specific location (NMS or SMS) and the specific iLearn day (Day 1, Day 2, or Day 3, etc.) and carbon Ms. Ellis when you send it.

This is NOT the same training that we had on our Growth Day last month. On our February 20th Growth Day, teachers were trained on Trauma Informed Care (part 2).

Success With Higher Standards

Southwestern High School will strive to graduate every student college/career ready and prepared for the 21st century.
