South School

Dear South School Families,


Report cards went home last week. The teachers and interventionists have worked very hard preparing them for you. In March of 2013, the RSU 13 School Board adopted a long term strategic plan that committed the district to moving forward with a transition to Proficiency-Based Learning. Since that time, we have been working on steps to gradually implement this approach, and the new report card is an important advance in this over-all effort. Teachers and interventionists have worked very hard to prepare these reports for you. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us for more information.


We are certainly in the holiday spirits here at South School! We are happy to report that the PTF had great success with their annual Holiday Fair. We’d like to thank them for their continued support. Performers from Studio Red, which include several of our very own South School students, came to our school to perform Candy Land Suites. It was fun for students to watch their peers on stage! Many of our students have taken field trips to the Farnsworth Art Museum to enjoy the winter wonderland display in the Wyeth Family Christmas exhibit. While there, students also enjoyed making holiday crafts. As previously reported, our 2nd grade students attended a wonderful live performance of the Nutcracker at the Camden Opera House.   On December 9th, some of our students will attend the OSHE Advanced Theatre Class performance of “a Visit From Saint Nick” and our kindergarten students will soon be warming the hearts of Rockland citizens by caroling along Main Street. Be sure to look for us there the morning of December 18th!


Colder temperatures are here! Please remember to send students to school with coats, boots, hats, and mittens. As the temperature and weather conditions deteriorate, students should also have snow pants. We go outside for recess unless it is raining or the temperature is below 10 degrees. Also, please remember to send indoor shoes as it is uncomfortable for students to wear coats or boots during the school day.  


Once again, we are happy to be able to support dental health in our school by hosting Tooth Protectors Dentil Clinic January 7th, 8th, and 9th. It’s not too late to sign up! 


Christmas break is December 22nd and we’ll return to school on January 5th. South School wishes you and your family a great holiday!


Thanks for all you do!
