A Message from Marcie

Happy Friday, South Park!

We had a wonderful week at South Park and enjoyed the beautiful Chicago weather! Today, we held our final fire drill of the school year and completed most MAP tests. For students who were absent, we will be sure to provide an opportunity for MAP make-up tests next week.

A reminder that Erin's Law presentations will be held on Monday, May 16th. If you would like to opt your child out and have not already done so, please let me know before Monday.

Enjoy the weekend!
