Super Chat

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

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra explains the fundraising campaign for the new schools' playgrounds.  Basic playground equipment is included in the base bid, but the desire was to purchase some upgrades to put an "exclamation point" on the project.  Included in these upgrades are a full rubberized surface, and ADA accessibility at Miami Whitewater Elementary.  More information and the link to donate can be found HERE.  

Assistant Superintendent Corinne Hayes explains the instructional plans for the 21-22 school year, namely the elimination of the full virtual option.  

Mr. Hamstra also gives the monthly update on the construction project.  Crosby and Harrison Elementaries have reached substantial completion!  The Farewell Open Houses are planned for the current school buildings on Saturday, May 29.  (More details HERE.), with the Ribbon Cutting and Dedication ceremonies for the new buildings following on Sunday, August 1.  Don't forget to check out southwestschools.org/facilities for the very latest!
