Southwest Elementary School Calendar

Welcome to Southwest Elementary, home of the Superfrogs, located in Pratt, Kansas!

Southwest is a progressive elementary school focused on a culture that promotes a rigorous and relevant curriculum in every classroom, that is supported through positive relationships between our staff, students, families, and community.

Technology is woven throughout the academic day of our students, as each classroom has a Smartboard, document camera, access to both laptop and iPad carts, as well as the use of an Osmo, which has been a big hit with our kids!

Along with an engaging academic experience in the general education classroom, students receive music and physical education instruction, daily, from our specialists.  The MTSS Program (Multi-tiered System of Support) provides additional support in both reading and math for all students based on their individual learning needs.  Students also have many opportunities to learn about science through hands on experiences that embrace the Next Generation Science Standards.

K-2 classrooms emphasize the character education traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, citizenship, and caring.  Our 3rd and 4th grade students focus on additional character traits that emphasize humility, self-control, perseverance, initiative, truthfulness, work ethic, obedience, and gratefulness.

We love the support of our families and the community!  For parents who would like to be involved with the school, we have a Southwest PTO that does an outstanding job of supporting our Southwest School community.  We also have a Site Council that works with our administration and teachers to support and provide direction for our school.

Visitors are always welcome to see our school!  You will find that we are proud Greenbacks and love our Southwest School and community.

“Once a Greenback, Always a Greenback!”
