Super Chat

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

In this episode, High School of Business teacher Trevor Ward explains the DECA program and business opportunities provided to students who choose that pipeline.  Several DECA students are preparing to travel to Orlando in late April to compete at the national level.  

Athletic Director Mark Meibers previews the "Inspired by Excellence" capital campaign, designed to upgrade the athletic facilities using no tax dollars.  Due to the restructuring of the secondary campus due to the construction of the new school facilities, some athletic facilities will need to be relocated.  All athletic upgrades will be privately funded through this effort.

Finally, Superintendent John Hamstra provides the monthly in-depth update on the current status of the facilities project, including a wrap-up of the first meeting of the Pride Wall committee.  The Pride Walls will serve as a historical marker to preserve the memories of the current buildings and to give a timeline of the school district.
