College and Career Week

Southwest Elementary is proud to present College and Career week from Monday, February 6 – Friday February 10. During this exciting week, we will welcome several professionals from around Lakeland to come and talk to different grade levels about their career, why they chose that particular career, and what it takes to get into their career. Staff members will also be supporting the college they graduated from by wearing their college shirt on Monday and Friday. Students will also be able to wear their favorite college shirt/jersey on Friday, February 10th.  Make sure your child pays close attention to the morning show that week as there will be questions during the afternoon announcements and prizes will be awarded.
