Welcome to Southwest Elementary, home of the Superfrogs, located in Pratt, Kansas!
Southwest is a progressive, schoolwide Title One 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. Positive classroom relationships are facilitated through daily classroom morning meetings and the Zones of Regulation social emotional curriculum, that is a focus in all K-4 classrooms.
Along with an engaging academic experience in the general education classroom, students receive daily music and physical education instruction from our specialists. Additionally, the MTSS Program (Multi-tiered System of Support) provides additional instructional services in both reading and math, for all students based on their individual learning needs. In science, students have many hands-on opportunities in both the classroom, as well as in the science lab, located in the district’s ACE building (Academic Center of Excellence).
Technology is woven throughout the academic day of our students. Each classroom has a Smartboard and document camera to support instruction. Students are 1:1 with an individual classroom device. K-2 students utilize iPads, while our 3rd-4th grade students use Chromebooks. Google Classroom is introduced and used in each classroom to promote digital literacy with our students and will serve as our distance learning platform should it be needed in the 2020-2021 school year.
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!"
