Super Chat

The May edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra previews the multitude of end-of-the-year activities, including the next meeting of the Pride Wall Committees, the Volunteer Appreciation Picnic, Academic & Military Signing Night, and culminating with the 139th William Henry Harrison High School Commencement Ceremony coming up on May 30.

Mr. Hamstra also explains the summer "Grow to Know" initiative, which seeks to bridge the gap between school years to avoid the summer slide.  Programs are available at all four elementary schools and are conducted in partnership with area churches.  Summer school and summer enrichment camps are offered at the junior school and high school as well.  More details can be found in the podcast and on the individual buildings' websites.

Finally, Mr. Hamstra provides the monthly in-depth update on the current status of the facilities project, including the third Town Hall Meeting, coming up on June 26 at 7:00 PM in the Martin Marietta Theater. This meeting will update the community on the status of the project and answer any questions from stakeholders.
