Info for little panthers and their families!

Issue #41, June 9, 2020

Little Panther families:

Thank you so much for all you did for your little one(s) during the COVID-19 school shut down. All of us at South School understand how challenging this time was and we appreciate that you demonstrated grit and perseverance! Your child(ren) will look back on this time and appreciate how strong you were!

This is the last newsletter for the school year -- I am leaving some important links (and videos) here for you to access and posting a few end-of-year photos!

Also, many of you have been asking about summer school. We will host several playground events at South School and I will communicate those dates in the near future.

Superintendent Seager announced a summer learning opportunity yesterday at the Watervliet Public Schools Board of Education meeting. You can get more information at the link below.

Enjoy your summer! I hope you have time to relax and enjoy your child(ren) and have great fun together!

As always, thank you for sharing your little panther with us!

Carole Fetke, Principal
