Character Trait- Forgiving


Please make sure you touch base with your radar kids on a daily basis! I've heard that our kids are excited about the extra acknowledgement.

New Music Teacher

Please help me give a warm South School welcome to Nicole Junkel. Nicole is from the St. Louis area. She graduated from Missouri State University. She is currently doing a 6 month internship called Festival Disney at Walt Disney World in Florida. (I KNOW....Cool, right?) She will be moving back to Missouri in June and is excited to be a South School Tiger!


As the year winds down, please make sure you are still planning engaging lessons. Keeping the students actively involved in meaningful lessons will help decrease disruptions. Our kids do not do well with down time or free time. #FINISHSTRONG

Class List for Next Year

I spoke with Angela Otiker, and she would like to continue to do class lists the same way we have done in the past. I will place the cards in your mailbox. Please fill them out and turn them back to me.

We Are...South School

We build each other up and we give HOPE to our students for a better tomorrow. Do we make a difference? YOU BET! #Everyday
