Welcome to South Elementary School

  • Dear Parents,

    I want to welcome you to South Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited to have the privilege of helping your student grow in academics, character, responsibility and friendship. There are many exciting developments at South this year. I can't wait for your child to have the opportunity to experience all South has to offer.  

    We encourage parent involvement at South. Please feel free to join some of our groups and activities we provide for families. We have a great Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO).  They meet one evening a month to plan activities and provide support for our great school.. We also have a program called All Pro Dad. This is a once a month breakfast that provides many fathers quality time with their child. Throughout the year we have other activities like book fair, carnival and family night. I encourage you to participate in these events with your child.  If your child sees that you value their education then they will also value it.

    To encourage positive behavior we practice a Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS). It is a way for us to have clear concise expectations for our students and teach them the correct behavior in a positive way. Last year we saw great gains in many areas of our school.  We encourage great character in our students and I am sure your student will come home talking about getting PBIS incentives and awards. Please encourage them to strive to have excellent character and behavior. These are qualities that will not only help them be successful in their learning but in their life.

    I can’t say enough how much we love our students at South school. South has an excellent staff who work constantly to serve your student. If you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Our staff consists of extremely devoted individuals who strive to provide the best for your child. We are happy to have you as a part of our South Elementary family!

    Sincerely,
