Dear Southwest Parents:
vacation provides time for rest and relaxation. I hope our students are
rejuvenated and ready for the start of a new year at Southwest Magnet High
School and Law Academy.
the beginning of the new school year approaches, I look forward to the first
day of school. Opening day offers excitement and promise for educators and
students alike. When our students return to school on August 1, we look forward
to doing our very best to make a positive difference in their lives. We will
use our array of talents to work together towards establishing a rich and
stimulating learning environment for the students of Southwest.
year, as in the past, we must concentrate on the processes that spur continuing
advancement: evaluating what we have, determining what we can do to improve,
and identifying what we need to make
those improvements. There will be changes made in regard to curriculum and for
the benefit of our overall student achievement and school operation.
know that my goal is for us to continue to work together for the benefit
of the students of Southwest Magnet High School. I am very interested in
hearing from you, our parents, regarding
your ideas and suggestions on ways to continue to make improvements. We are recommitting ourselves to
serving the students of this school as we prepare for another school year.
we guide our students in the 21st century, we readily admit that their
world is different from the one we knew when we were their age. At the same
time, however, their world is the same in significant ways. By that I mean that
they, too, have parents and grandparents who want only the best for them, who
will do all within their power to assure that their children are happy,
healthy, and safe. We understand that you have entrusted them to our care and
we take that responsibility seriously.
I look forward to the 2016-2017 school
year and envision a year filled with excitement and many reasons to celebrate. Together,
we can help our students achieve greatness.
