A Message from Marcie

Happy Friday, South Park!

It's hard to believe that we just finished our second trimester of the school year. This past Tuesday during the District 109 Institute Day, our teachers looked closely at student data and developed plans that would make the greatest impact on our students both social-emotionally and academically. Though many aspects of this school year have been different than in pre-pandemic years, we are committed to ensuring that all students learn and grow. A huge thank you to the full South Park staff for their thoughtful planning to ensure that all of our students experience success this school year.

Before we head into the weekend, we want to let you know that the SHIELD testing schedule was adjusted across the district due to Tuesday's Institute Day. South Park ended up testing today, which means we won't get results until tomorrow. Should your child test positive, we will call you over the weekend.

Enjoy the weekend!
