Building Farewell Open House Information

Posted on: January 28, 2021

The Southwest Local School District is anxiously preparing for the grand opening of three new elementary schools and a new junior school in August of 2021.  The new buildings will shape the face of education in our community for the next 50+ years and we feel privileged to be able to provide our students and teachers with the facilities they deserve. 

While we look to the future, we also honor the past; recognizing the significance of the current school buildings, both as a centerpiece of the communities they served, and the memories made within their halls.  To that end, each of the new buildings will have a Pride Wall installed near the entrance.  Each Pride Wall will have several panels containing pictures and captions to chronicle the people and events that shaped life as a Harrison Wildcat throughout the decades.

We invite the public to take a trip down memory lane and say farewell to the current school buildings!  On Saturday, May 29, 2021, the buildings will be open for self-guided tours.  Take pictures, reminisce with former classmates, and relive the memories from your school days.  Crosby Elementary, Harrison Elementary, Miamitown Elementary, and Whitewater Valley Elementary will be open from 3:00-5:00 PM, and Harrison Junior School will be open from 4:00-6:00 PM.

Plan to stick around after the tours and attend the 139th annual dinner and meeting of the William Henry Harrison High School Alumni Association, beginning at 6:00 PM at Harrison Junior School.

Follow the progress of the new building construction at, and mark your calendar for Sunday, August 1, when we will hold the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremonies for the new Crosby Elementary, Harrison Elementary, Miami Whitewater Elementary, and Harrison Junior School!
