February 2022

Our Mission at South

We provide learning experiences that support our diverse poupulaiton in achieving individual potential within a dynamic society.

Principal's Message:

Happy Kindness and Black History Month!

In February we ask students to take a little extra time to do a special kindness for someone they know or maybe even that they don't know each day. We hope this builds a new habit of going out of our way for others. Examples of kindness activities might include:

  • Opening the door for someone
  • Holding the door for someone
  • Write a kind note to someone
  • Sit in a new place in the lunch room and meet a new person
  • Give a compliment to as many people as you can
  • Collect litter you see on the ground

We hope you find yourself doing small acts of kindness too!
