New 2nd Grade Teacher!

This is an exciting time at South School. Our Second Grade classrooms continue to grow. Due to these large numbers, we were able to hire another Second Grade teacher to reduce the number of students in each class. A smaller class size is a great benefit to everyone involved. The new teacher will be introduced soon and will start as soon as possible.
