Welcome to Southwood Elementary

Thank you for helping us make September awesome at Southwood Elementary!  Mrs. Hegel reports that we did very well at the Book Fair.  Our first ever STEAM-themed Family Fun Night was a huge success...and tons of fun!  Our kindergarten through second grade students experienced NWEA testing for the very first time and did a fabulous job on their Math and Reading tests.  As I write, we are in the midst of our College Go Week activities.  The enthusiasm about our dress-up days has been a joy to watch and experience. 

            We just completed our first eLearning Day of the year.   On these days, we hope that you are able to get a glimpse of how we can utilize technology to enhance learning and challenge our students.  Students are able to create some pretty awesome work with their devices.  Technology isn’t always the best means for students to meet a learning objective or obtain a new skill, so they will also be putting their reading and writing skills to good use.  We tell our students often that a laptop or iPad is a learning tool and not just a toy.  We want their learning “toolbox” to be full of whatever is necessary to achieve their learning goals.

            October is another busy month!  One of our most important dates on the calendar is Thursday, October 13.  On that day (or sometime during that week), we will hold our Parent/Teacher Conferences.  This is a great opportunity for parents to have intentional time with teachers to discuss student progress and goals for the year.  We hope you will make this time a priority.  Please also know that parent-teacher communication should be an ongoing occurrence during the year and not just a one-time event.  Thank you for working with us as we seek to make this school year the very best it can be for all of our students.
