Important Information About Chromebooks and Chargers
I would encourage parents to keep the Chromebook and charger in the backpack unless they are needed for e-learning. If these items are lost, parents will be charged for a replacement.
Charger (damaged, missing)
Chromebook (missing, stolen, damaged beyond repair)

The 42nd Elementary Music Festival will be held at the Southport High School Fieldhouse on Thursday, March 24th at 7:00 PM. This year, we will not be selling tickets, but we will be accepting donations at the door. Please consider donating if you can to help us absorb the cost of the event.
