News and Notes for February
From Mrs. Reid
Progress reports will be coming home the week of February 10th. We moved it back a week due to the school closings and delays. Continue to check Parent Connect for weekly updates on grades. If you need a Parent Connect code for your student, please contact the school office.
Please encourage your child to sell items to friends, neighbors, and family members. All proceeds help support student activities at South Grove!

CONTEST: Box Tops for Education
We have a Box Top Contest going on at South Grove Intermediate. The contest will end on February 21, 2014. Our school receives 10 cents for every box top received. This money goes towards programs, projects, etc.
We also take Campbell's Soup labels and pop tabs for Riley Children's Hospital. Thank you for your help in saving these items for our school.

Free Verse Poems
By Dane Poole
In a broken house
I wonder why…
So much loss and anger
Children screaming and crying
Parents search the rubble
Some alive some dead
War takes so much
War gives so little
People fight to live
Countries fight for power
Truth be told it saddens the world
What has happened to humanity?
By Dakoda Lambert
A tornado is at our house,
It is picking up every mouse. squeak,
We were skipping stumbling steps on stairs
every time I tell this story nobody really cares.
We ran grabbing stuff to protect us.
We were dodging glass and other objects.CHING,
It tore our house down
and almost destroyed the town.
It is a good thing we tried our best to survive
because we are still alive.
By Haley McGhee
A quick drawing.
A wonderful painting.
Art is not just something to do,
It is something I love.
Easy to express your feelings,
Lost in a neat world of colors,
By Erika Sussman
White snowy day.
Clouds covering the sun.
Twenty-two degrees leaves off trees.
By Sadie Bennett
Glistens in the wind
Beautiful as a rainbow
Snow whistles at me
By Logan Summitt
Ice cream melts the day.
It is as hot as the sun.
Where are you summer?
