Before & After School Program for Fall 2022
The After Care Program was posted via the Park District earlier this Spring and is already on a Waitlist. If you'd like to be put on the waitlist please email Megan Carbone directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
South Park Birthday Sign
Let's CELEBRATE your child's birthday together!!! Available for summer birthdays, as well!
Rent a South Park birthday yard sign for $10!
The South Park PTO will place the sign on your front lawn.
Purchasing celebration books not only supports the PTO, but is also a wonderful way to remember a special event, celebrate a child's accomplishments, honor a teacher/staff member, AND enhance the Learning Media Commons (LMC/Library).
* A minimum of $20 is suggested If you have any questions, please contact Holly Schlan
