Wishing our SRS families a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

SRS had a busy week! Our classrooms are filling pom pom jars up and spinning the prize wheel earning some extra fun activities. Mrs. Baird, Mrs. Fultz, and Mrs. Pozner surprised the staff with a special gratitude cart. Mrs. Hahn had students create beautiful parfleches in 2nd grade art. We also had many students work on gratitude projects. This year we are so grateful to work with such amazing students and staff. We wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

PTO News

SNOW BOWL: Snow Bowl has become a tradition at SRS right before winter break. It's a day where the school community comes together and works to earn the coveted Snow Bucks trophy for their classroom. PTO creates a science activity and craft for each classroom and provides the supplies. Thank you to all those who volunteered to help organize this event via the Facebook post! This year we won’t be asking for volunteers in the school for that day.


MARSHFIELD HOLIDAY LIGHTS SHOW: A portion of sales goes to the PTO with the link below! The Marshfield Holiday Light Show is excited for its second season starting 11/19 at the Marshfield Fairgrounds. The show will feature dozens of larger-than-life displays, some towering as tall as 3 stories, and spanning more than 50 feet in length spread over the course of a 1-mile driving trail! The show is scheduled to remain open Thursday - Sunday through December 30th. A full schedule and car-load tickets are on sale for $23 at MarshfieldLightShow.com/SouthRiverSchool.
