About Us

Whether you have been a part of our South School family for a while, or are new to our halls, we are pleased to see all the students here each and every day.  

The entire staff here at South School are determined to make this the best year yet.  We strive for academic excellence within a safe and friendly environment for all students.  We look forward to working with students, parents, and the community to achieve our goals and watch our students thrive!  

We strongly encourage parent involvement and ask all parents to be an active participant in their child's education.  Please have a conversation with your child about the meaning of following the 3 R's - respect yourselves, respect others and respect your environment.  These three concepts are the basis for creating an excellent academic and social environment and are a part of our daily school announcements and school wide expectations.  It is very important for children to hear this from both parents and teachers.  

We hope that you always feel welcome at our school.  We have a wonderful staff that genuinely cares about our students.  If you have a concern about your child's day, we encourage you to speak directly to his/her teacher.  Your child's teacher will let you know the best way to reach them.  You can find their contact information under our district's directory.  Additionally, twice a year, we have parent/teacher conferences.  This is a great time to discuss how your child is doing academically as well as socially.

As always, please feel free to contact us at any time!
