Welcome to Southwood Elementary

Dear Southwood Elementary Students, Parents, & Community:

Hello and welcome to the 2016-17 school year!  The staff at SES is extremely excited to begin building relationships, creating unique learning opportunities, encouraging students to achieve their personal best, and making this school year a great experience for everyone.  Thank you for joining us on this great adventure!

My name is Phil Boone, and I was recently named the new Principal at Southwood Elementary School.  I consider it a tremendous honor and privilege to begin serving in this position.  While this is a new position for me, I am very familiar with our school.  I attended the Southwood Schools all the way from kindergarten through graduation from high school.  My teaching career has all been here in the southern part of MSD of Wabash County--nine years at LaFontaine and five years at SES, all in 4th grade.  My wife, Shelly, works as a nurse practitioner in Wabash.  We have two children: Elijah (4th grade) and Adeline (1st).

Due to my experience teaching here, I know for certain that I have inherited a group of teachers and support staff who are passionate, enthusiastic, and committed to helping all students learn and grow this year.  Classroom teachers are the individuals who will know our students the best, so I encourage you to take every opportunity to stay in communication with your child’s teacher throughout the year.  On our end, we will make every effort to keep communication ongoing as well.  Please check our SES webpage, Facebook, and Twitter accounts for school-related announcements, events, and information.

Thank you for partnering with us and allowing us to play a role in influencing your child in a positive way this year.  

Phil Boone
