South School


Dear Parents and Families,

On behalf of South School’s staff we’d like to say….WOW, what a year! To better state that- what a GREAT year! It seems like just yesterday when you were dropping your children off for the first time and today we already had to say goodbye! We held a farewell parade at dismissal, where all teachers and staff lined the walkway to the busses, to cheer on students during their departure in celebration of their great successes and hard work this year. It was a bittersweet farewell!


We have covered a lot of material and participated in many fun and exciting projects this year. We’ve had great enrichment field trips and assemblies and have made many new friends along the way! Students have grown both physically and academically and it’s been an honor to be a part of their academic growth. Thank you for sharing them with us.


The 2015-2016 school calendar can be found on-line but here are a few important dates:


6/22–6/26:    Our school office will still be open. Hours are 7:30-2:00

8/31:              First day of school at South School for grades 1-4

8/31 – 9/2:      Kindergarten screening (by appointment only)

9/3:                First day of school for kindergarten students

9/4:                 No school

9/7:                 No school

9/8:                  School resumes as usual for grades K-4th


If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to fill out our parent survey so that we can use your feedback to make next year even better! The link to our survey is:


Each of your children has brought such joy and happiness to our school and we look forward to seeing them in the fall. Have a wonderful summer and don’t forget to read, read, read!
