Mrs. Alexandra Buck

Hello! My name is Alexandra Buck & I am the full-time School Social Worker here at Southwest Middle School. I am here to help all of our students have a safe, healthy and happy school year. My job is to ensure our students and families have & are supported with their needs: basic (food/clothing/housing), physical and mental health as well as social and emotional order to promote academic progress & success. I also lead our Attendance Awards program here at SWMS and work hard to identify any barriers students and families are facing that may inhibit their ability to attend school.
