Ms. Latysha Dupree: To become an asset to SOH

Ms. Florentina Garcia: Me gustaría estar envuelta en la educación de mi hijo y ayudar en lo que la escuela necesite con mucho gusto y gracias si me dan la oportunidad.(I would like to be involved in my son’s education and gladly help the school with whatever is needed. Thank you if you give me the opportunity.)

Ms. Blanca Wines: Greetings SOH parents, I’m a parent of a 11th, 10th and 9th student at SOH, I’d like to run for DPAC representative for our school.

I’ve served as a Historian, Vice President, and President of my children’s PTA.  I also helped create a Classroom Parent Ambassador Program that included specific duties such as: communicating and leading parents in  their classroom celebrations (Teachers birthdays, teacher appreciation week, end of the year parties), organized volunteers, fundraising and class donations. I also helped  in creating and organizing my children’s  school Jog-a-thon for the past four years. The Jog-a-thon was a very large event I planned with the help of other parents that helped raise lots of money for the school. Last year I participated in Southwest Middle School SSC, DPAC, and Delac committees. I believe it takes a village to raise and educate our children, therefore, volunteering is one of the many ways we as parents could help with our children’s education.



Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year

Dear parents, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.

Please know that you are an important part of the Raider community. We value your time and commitment towards the education of your child. If you would like to be a parent leader, SOH offers opportunities such as School Site Council. This committee meets once a month at 2:45 pm in our Parent Center.

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are elected by their peers.

If you are interested in running as a parent representative to School Site Council, please contact Ms. Gladys Acuna at 619-628-3637 or email at Gladys.Acuna@sweetwaterschools.org by Friday, August 2nd. Elections will take place on August 8th during Open House. Thank you.
