South School

Dear Families,


The school year is well under way and the first signs of autumn are beginning to show. Students are working hard to follow our school routines and procedures and classroom teachers are being diligent in helping our students make great choices. I’d like to thank everyone who has worked hard to help make our school year opening a success.


It is important for parents to know that our 3rd and 4th graders will be taking the NWEA test during the month of October. Please make sure that your student gets plenty of rest and eats a healthy breakfast as we want all our students to be successful.


October 6th begins National Fire Prevention Week! The Rockland Fire Department will be in our school during this week to discuss fire safety with our students. Keeping with this theme, our kindergarten students will have the opportunity to tour the Rockland Fire Station the following week.


Parent Teacher Conferences will be here before you know it, on November 5th! Teachers will soon be sending home a notice regarding conferences so be sure to check your child’s backpack regularly. 


Our school is participating in the Box Tops for Education Fundraising Program again this year. It doesn’t seem like much, 10 cents per Box Top, but they do add up! Last year our school raised $1400 from Box Tops alone so keep clipping!


As always, thank you for all that you do for your child. You are the most important role model and influence and we can’t thank you enough for your efforts.


Ms. Ward
