Parents are always welcome at Southwest and are encouraged to become involved. We believe very strongly in demonstrating good character at Southwest. You may be asked to complete some surveys or questionnaires about your family’s experiences here at Southwest; we want to make sure we are meeting all of your needs. You may have even noticed that our playground has received a facelift this year. Thanks to the Department of Natural Resources, Southwest received the 2016 Playground Scrap Tire Surface Material Grant which is going to allow our students to take their learning to a whole new level by being able to explore more, learn about recycling (100% of the tires on the playground have been recycled tires right here in Missouri), and have lessons in an outdoor classroom!
