Southwestern High School participated in several designated jeans days this school year to help families within our district. With the donations collected we were able to help purchase Thanksgiving dinners for several families. At Christmas time we were also able to purchase gifts for three families who were in need as well. In addition to these holidays, the elementary, middle and high schools combined to participate in our annual sweatshirt scholarship day, which awards a scholarship to two deserving seniors pursuing college. This year we will split the $390 collected between two students. With the generosity and thoughtfulness of the Southwestern faculty and staff, we were able to assist many families within our district, who I know were grateful for our support. Thank you to everyone who has participated in our jeans days and supported the Southwestern community. Your commitment to helping others is very much appreciated.
