Principal’s Corner

 Hello South School Friends and Families,


Here we are, at the end of the school year, and I am so very proud of the work and progress your students and our staff have made in pursuit of our goals.  We’ve successfully transitioned to a new building, implemented a new Transitional First Grade, piloted a new literacy program, built a playground, developed all kinds of new protocols, welcomed 34 new staff members to South School and so much more!  Our work is far from complete though and I’d like to give you all a preview into what is in store for the 2017-18 school.   In bullet form, here are some things to look forward to:


·       Continuation of Responsive Classroom implementation

·       Full implementation of the Reading Street Literacy program

·       Expansion of our Intensive Support Programs

·       Implementation of the Second Step bullying prevention and social/emotional support programming

·       Addition of Reconciliation Circles adopted from the Restorative Justice

·       A second trimester instructional shift to flexible grouping for mathematics


Admittedly, there is a great deal of academic jargon in that list so please feel free to reach out to me or Mr. Onorato over the summer for further information.  Many challenges lay in-wait for us but, with our capable staff, and positive energy we will meet them!  Thank you to all who have taken the time to read my articles this past school year.


See you in the Fall,


Justin Bennett
