Mrs. Bogdan retiring as Southwest principal

Southwest School Principal Patti Bogdan will retire at the conclusion of the 2019-2020 school year, following the completion of her ninth year as an administrator in Evergreen Park School District 124.
The D124 Board of Education officially approved Bogdan’s retirement at its Nov. 19 meeting. The SW principal will retire with more than 30 years of experience in the field of education.
“I hit the jackpot when I landed at Southwest School,” Mrs. Bogdan said. “It is difficult for me to find the words that express my gratitude for all the support I've received from the staff, parents, families, community, and especially the students throughout the years."
