Week of May 10, 2021
Hello Southfield Regional Families,
Have a Wonderful Mother’s Day
We would like to wish all the mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! We hope your day is full of joy, and may you spend it surrounded by family and loved ones. This is your day!
However, just because there is only one day out of the year dedicated to you does not mean that every other day of the year shouldn’t be Mother’s Day. After all, being a mother is a 365 day, 24 hours, seven days a week job. It’s not easy, but know it’s recognized and appreciated.
So, this post is for you moms! You are the superheroes in disguise, the Wonder Women of our world, and we thank you for all that you do. There’s nothing like a mother’s love to give us all the strength we need to succeed.
Parents, please try to complete the Frontline Health Screening form below before sending their students to school. If your child has any of the symptoms on the health form, they must stay home and learn virtually until they are symptom free.
Seniors, Please see the attached flyer below for important dates.
If you missed the Power Hour with Dr. Green, I have attached the powerpoint from her presentation.
Parents, please contact your scholar's teacher for Parent Teacher Conference times that will be held Thursday, May 13, 4:00 - 6:00 pm.
