New 2nd Grade Teacher!
This is an exciting time at South School. Our Second Grade classrooms continue to grow. Due to these large numbers, we were able to hire another Second Grade teacher to reduce the number of students in each class. A smaller class size is a great benefit to everyone involved. Please help me give a warm South School welcome to Ms. Dunlap!
FREE interactive and informative workshops for parents are available this year at the Southwest Early Childhood Center. ALL South parents are welcome to attend! Mark your calendars for the following dates:
- Feb. 22nd from 6-8 PM
- March 21st from 6-8 PM
- April 4th from 6-8 PM
- Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 17 days per year, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.
- At JCPS, it is our goal for schools to have an attendance rate above 90%. Right now, South is at 89.7%. We are SO close to our goal. Please make sure your child comes to school each day that they are not sick. Every hour of every day counts.
- We appreciate your help in sending the message to students that school is important!
