Maximizing Student Growth While Creating Positive Memories

Field Day is Coming Up!

North and South Elementary students will join forces again this coming Monday, May 23rd for our annual field day. Please make sure your child wears athletic footwear (no sandals) and comfortable clothes. Hats, sunglasses and water bottles will be allowed. We will have sunscreen on hand, but please apply at home if weather warrants. Mr. Yoder and Mr. Callighan will be sending additional information and reminders later this week. Our rain date will be May 24th.

Field Day Procedures for Parents

Below are some need to know procedures for Field Day:


  • Arrival time procedures for South students will remain the same.
  • ALL visitors and volunteers must check in at South Elementary prior to joining any stations.
  • Field Day Volunteers will park in the lot behind South's Gym and enter door #8.
  • Field Day Visitors will park in the asphalt lot, across the street from South, and enter door #1.
  • With our last event being at the High School, all bus riders and PACE students will be walked back to South at the conclusion of field day.
  • For visitors and volunteers who have signed up to take their child home from the event, there will be a check out process. Please listen to the PA announcements at the end of Field Day for directions.
  • Car Riders will exit the main gate of the football field once their car pulls forward.

Cool Whip Needed!

Weird request, right? Well, not if you are a third or fourth grader at South Elementary! All students have been working hard toward meeting their school goals this year. These goals include mastering each of the math facts operations, as well as meeting the proficiency levels for reading and math. Students who have met 5 out of 6 goals will get to scoop and flick cool whip at Mrs. Noe on the last day of school. The results are not final, but it's looking like we will need a LARGE amount of Cool Whip! Way to go students! Donations may be sent in at anytime between now and May 25.
