About Us

Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year at Southwestern Elementary! I am excited to be welcoming students back into the building this year! I can’t wait to hear from our students about their summer adventures and see their smiling faces. For returning families, I look forward to seeing you all and continuing to serve you, your children and the entire Southwestern Community. For families new to Southwestern, I am excited to meet you and your child, please know that we are all here to support your child in transitioning to our amazing school. Our staff and school community are all committed to providing the best educational experience for your child here at Southwestern. Let us know how we can help!

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. We want you to know you are welcome at Southwestern anytime to volunteer or just to get to know us better. If you have any questions about school expectations, please feel free to contact me. 

I am proud and honored to be the principal of Southwestern Elementary School and I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.  If you have questions concerning school, please feel free to call me or my assistant principal, Dr. Sabrina Lee. We look forward to a great school year!

Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious possessions.
